11 October 1916

Low cloud restricted flying for most of the day. Overnight however, 13 Squadron carried out bombing missions.

Captain Grenville Oxley Brunwin-Hales dropped a dozen 20-lb bombs upon Vitry Station – hitting a train and killing about 100 troops. Captain Sheridan bombed the aerodrome at Douai. A third aircraft (BE2c 2513) piloted by Lieutenant George Wadden failed to return from the mission and he was later reported taken prisoner.
