On 14 September 1917, Arthur Rhys Davids was forced to land after his S.E.5a was badly damaged in an encounter with Jasta 3. Schmidt may have been responsible for shooting him down but was never officially credited with the victory.  On 24 September 1917, Schmidt's career as a fighter pilot was effectively ended by wounds received in a dogfight with the Sopwith Camels of Squadron 70.
