5 November 1914

The entire Flanders region is once again grounded due to intense rain. Even the troops in the trenches are occupied with trying to stay dry and war, so fighting has almost completely stopped.

On the border between Marne and Verdun the weather is not so bad. From Pontfaverger Odis Först writes: "0802: Exploratory flight down to Chateau Thierry, then to Epernay and finally Reims. Patchy fog here and there. 2 hours 22 minutes.

Flanders is still rained out. The area from Reims to Verdun is now covered by a heavy fog, so no one is flying there either.

Yet again the entire front is either raining or foggy. No flying for me today.

Flanders is still rained out, and the area around Reims is still foggy, but the men of FFA 13 are getting things done.


Pontfaverger
Odis Först writes: "The Boelcke brothers came to the field today to give us instruction on conducting spotting and communication with the artillery. They have already done so with the officer pilots,and now it is our turn. We spent three hours this morning going over procedures with Ltn Oswald Boelcke, then spent time with our own officer observers learning to follow flight paths as each one likes to conduct them. Finally we learned the most by standing in front of the crowd as if we were the instructors, and explaining to each other how it's done. As soon as the weather is good enough we'll be going up in groups and practicing with some officers from the artillery."

The fog had lifted somewhat, so the Boelcke brothers flew over to their favorite artillery unit to inform them that the enlisted pilots were ready for flight training. They arrived at our field around 0900 and explained exactly what we would be doing. At 0930 they departed for the field where we would be conducting our exercise. We didn't have to know anything about the flag signals. We only had to follow the directions of our officer-observers. The operation lasted all day, and our total time over three flights was 2 hours 26 minutes.
