1205 hrs, 500 metres east of Hill 104, north of Villers-Bretonneux. Spad, fell down; Englishman. I was observing, and noted that a Kette (three) of German planes pursuing an English plane was being attacked from the rear. I dashed to their aid and attacked an English plane. After putting myself behind him several times, the adversary fell. The plane crashed into the ground and I saw that it smashed to pieces. This happened 500 metres east of Hill 104. Possibly a different Camel from 73 Sqn; three were lost.
