“German aeroplane came over at 7.30 am. – ascended with Lt. Wallace, lost sight of enemy while going through clouds & did not see him again. In evening at 6.30 went over Bethune Electric Power station with Capt. Heathcote. Returned at 7.30 to find a Zep. reported, being ‘duty pilot’, I went up & remained aloft for 40 mins reaching 7,000 ft but saw no signs of the Zep.”
