Around 2000, a patrol by a flight of FE2s from 11 Squadron RFC ran into one from Jasta 11 over Vitry. 2nd LIeutenan Douglas Stewart Kennedy & Captain John Achilles Le Royer claimed to have driven down three enemy aircraft, though the German authorities posted no losses.
However, Oberleutnant Lothar von Richthofen attacked 2nd Lieutenant John Arthur Cairns 1st Class Air Mechanic E G Perry in F E2b 4850. Their petrol tank was hit and they went down in flames. Fortunately they were able to crash land and both were taken prisoner. Leutnant Kurt Wolff shot down 2nd Lieutenant Philip Robinson and Second Class Air Mechanic H Tilley in FE2b 7698. They were able to get back over the lines but crashed landed in a trench. Both were injured, Robinson in the thigh (this victory has also been attributed to Karl Allmenroder but this seems unlikely).
The only British air losses on the Western Front today were 2nd Lieutenant William John Stonier and 2nd Lieutenant Frederick Reginald Croker from 2 Squadron RFC. They were out on an artillery registration mission in BE2c 2713 when their aircraft was hit by ground fire. Apparently one crew member fell out and the machine then crashed and burst into flames. Both men were killed.
