Issue 15 is dated June 7, 1917. The entry in part I for June 2 reads:
Westfront: Bei der 4. Armee sehr lebhaste Tätigkeit starker Erkundungs- und Sperrgeschwader. Vor rechtem Flügel 3. Armee feindliche Sperre. Erkundung: Bei der 6. Armee scheinen die feindlichen Ballone vermindert zu sein. Durch Ballonerkundung wurden bei der 7. Armee 80 alte und 2 neue Batterien, bei der 1. Armee 75 alte und 7 neue Batterien ertrannk.
Bombenangriffe: Wir belegten Hafen- und Bahnanlagen Dünkirchen mit 108 kg, Lager bei Arras mit 100 kg, Stellungen vor der 7. Armee mit 100 kg, Ortsunterkünste vor A.A. 21 mit 185 kg, Belfort, St. Amarin mit 100 kg, Pontavert und Berry au Bac mit 200 kg Sprengstoff.
Feindliche Verluste: 10 Flugzeuge (4 jenseits der feindlichen Linien), davon 5 im Luftkampf, 5 durch Flak.
Eigene Verluste: 1 Offizier tot, 4 Offiziere, 3 Vzfw., 1 Mann verwundet.
Ost- und Südostfront: Keine besonderen Nachrichten.
I won’t try to translate this, because I’ll probably get it wrong, and very little concerns Bishopgate. One unrelated thing to note is the small weight of bombs dropped on various targets. 100 kg is about 220 pounds; von Tillman could carry that much luggage in a Cessna, although it would probably tend more towards Coke than popcorn. The five victories in aerial combat are shown in The Jasta War Chronology, from Grub Street (please! It is not Grubb Street); there was an additional victory near Orkosk, by FliegerAbteilung (A) 232, which I take to be the Russian or south-eastern (Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, etc.) front. German losses are stated as one officer killed, four officers, three sergeants, and one enlisted man wounded. Note that no details of the German losses are given; no names, locations or units. This information is never found in the Nachrichtenblatt.
