1545 hrs, north-east of Villers-Bretonneux, near east edge of Bois de Hamel. Sopwith Camel, burned; Englishman. With five of my planes of Jasta 11, we attacked several enemy one-seaters at low altitude, flying north-east of Villers-Bretonneux. The English plane which I attacked started to burn after only a few shots from my guns. Then it crashed burning near the little wood north-east of Villers-Bretonneux, where it continued burning on the ground. Weather: low clouds and rain.
