Combat Report: 1500 hrs, south of Bapaume. Vickers one-seater, plane lying near Bapaume. Occupant: Major Hawker, dead. I attacked, together with two other planes, a Vickers one-seater at 3.000 metres altitude. After a long curve fight of three to five minutes, I had forced down my adversary to 500 metres. He now tried to escape, flying to the Front. I pursued and brought him down after 900 shots. Witnesses: Leutnant Wortmann, Leutnant Collin, etc. Weather: fine all day.
