Richthofen shares an apparently jocular moment with a relieved Algneron Bird, shortly after his downing. The strap of Richthofen's head bandage is clearly visible descending from under his cap and circling beneath his chin. This photograph is one of many which demonstrate that by early September Richthofen was neither morose nor isolating himself any longer 'within his four walls' after aerial combat.
