Do not open letter.
Posted Notes yesterday hope you get them-
Very hot & many Fatigues More Aeroplanes but no more air fights, it was a great exhibition & once the two great Battle planes appeared over, 100 yards apart- Ours was shot & so was the enemy €“ but he got away. Our men blame our own Machine Gunners, as the planes were flying so close together it was madness to fire at all- Like Duck shooting hard to judge how far in front when travelling at the rate of 1 mile a minute.
At Gallipoli it was heads down here its "Heads up" to see what brand of Plane it is.
O Circles on Wings of ours
+ Cross on enemies.
