4 June 1916 – Weather keeps the enemy away

The weather today prevented a lot of flying and few enemy machines were seen over the front and no aerial combats took place.

The only real work done today was artillery spotting, which was made more difficult by the weather but a little safer due to the lack of enemy aircraft.  RFC Headquarters reports 32 targets engaged.

Of those that did get up, one FE2b from 25 Squadron RFC was hit by AA fire. It’s pilot Lord Lieutenant FD Doune Was able to get back safely, which was just as well as his observer, 2nd Lieutenant RU Walker had been wounded.
