It was a beautiful time, Bölcke increased his bag of machines from twenty to forty. We beginners had not yet the experience of our masters, and we were quite satisfied when we did not get a hiding. Every time we went up we had a fight.

Sometimes the English came down to very low heights and visited Bölcke in his own quarters, dropping bombs. They absolutely challenged us to battle and never refused fighting.
