Combat Report: 1940 hrs, between Billy-Montighny and Sallaumines, this side of lines. No details concerning enemy plane as it was burnt. Soon after having shot down a BE near Rouex, we were attacked by a strong enemy one-seater force of Nieuports, Spads and Triplanes. The plane I had singled out caught fire after a short time, burned in the air and fell north of Henin LiƩtard.
