Combat Report: Jagdstaffel Boelcke. 0940 hrs, south of Grandcourt. Vickers two-seater. Together with several machines of our Staffel we attacked, on the enemy side above Grandcourt at 1.800 metres altitude, several low flying artillery planes. After having harassed a BE two-seater for a time, the plane disappeared in the clouds and then crashed to the ground, between the trenches south of Grandcourt. The machine was taken immediately under artilleray fire and destroyed. Weather: low clouds, strong winds and showers.
