1220 hrs. Forest near Mericourt. Armstrong – 2, burned; Englishman. Flying at a very low height, I saw shell explosions near the scene of a victory. Coming nearer I recognised an Englishman at 500 metres altitude, flying home. I cut himm off and approached him. After 100 shots the enemey plane was burning. Then it crashed down, hit the ground near the small wood of Mericourt and continued to burn. Weather: high winds all day; some rain in the afternoon.
