Combat Report: 0820 hrs, Tilloy. Nieuport one-seater – burnt. Occupant: Lieutenant Grivert – English. An enemy squadron had passed our lines. I went up, overtaking their last machine. After only a very few shots, the enemy’s propeller stopped turning. The adversary landed near Tilloy, upsetting his plane. I observed that some moments later the plane began to burn. NB. From this date, German and British times became the same, and would continue so until 16 April, so on the next few reports, the times should coincide. Weather: clear in the morning with occasional clouds.
