1840 hrs, south-west of Bois de Hamel. Sopwith Camel, burned; Englishman. With six planes of Jasta 11, I attacked large enemy squadron. During the fight I observed that a Triplane was attacked and shot at from below by a Camel. I put myself behind the adversary and brought him down, burning, with only a few shots. The enemy plane crashed down near the forest of Hamel where it burned further on the ground. Weather: fine at first; cloudy and overcast later.
