19 December 1916 – Relatively quiet on the Western Front

Poor weather has curtailed most flying for the last couple of days. A few aircraft got up today on observation patrols.

2nd Lieutenant William Kerr Magill Britton from 29 Squadron RFC was up on patrol over In his DH2 (A2614) when he was set upon by an enemy aircraft. He was shot up but managed to give them the slip and got back to his aerodrome.
