9 April 1915 – Spotting continues

In preparation for the landing, spotting flights were made by the aeroplanes for the London, Majestic, Szviftsure, Prince George, triumph, Talbot, Agamemnon, and Albion.

The Log of the Prince George is typical:

‘ An aeroplane spotted for us and gave us a fine object lesson in what can be done in this respect. It was about 6000 feet above the battery, flying in figure of
eight. At that distance looked as if it were stationary over the target. It sent the result of each shot by Wireless immediately it fell, and the rapidity with which it spotted and transmitted was quite a revelation to everyone. ‘
