November 1916
27th We had a very heavy frost last night & the water is covered with ice. About 10 A.M. the sun came out & the weather has changed again. Large quantities of Cupolas for dugouts arrived here to-day & are being taken out to the supports to-night. This afternoon about 3 o'clock we witnessed the sad plight of one of our own planes. He caught fire in a duel & was forced to decend. The pilot handled his machine magnificently but hit ground about two hundred yds from us very hard & destroyed the machine. The [pilot] was killed himself but the observer escaped injury.
