25 November 1916 – New Formation

A number of the potted histories of 13 Squadron suggest that 13 Squadon RFC carried out a pioneering formation bombing mission today, when nine of the squadrons aircraft bombed German anti-aircraft positions near Achiet-Le-Grand.

However, I have not yet located an account of this mission or those involved in it. The RFC Communiqué for the period does not mention it nor does the official history. Mysterious!
