Kofl 17 - feindliche Ballone vor der 17. Armee
This is a cutting from the original map of Kofl 17, dated 18th of August 1918, when Uffz. Staudacher claimed his victory at Beaumetz (left) in British held territory. The German frontline was in a distance of about 12 kilometers at the right.
It shows definitely that German Jasta Pilots fought also behind the British front. Due to shortage of men and machines only 3 pilots of Jasta 1 were at hand for intercepting, a fourth one (Ltn. Branning) had to left for home with engine trouble.
