Sous Lieutenant Alain Auguste Terme

I came across this pilot while searching old posts on this forum. From these it would appear he made three claims on the Salonica front flying with Escadrille N91. all were claimed with Sergent Henri Astor as his gunner (in a Nieuport 10/12?). Does anyone have details on these claims? I know the first one one fell on 3 February 1916.

Hello Spad

Lt Terme was evocated here

on the memoire des hommes site
SGA - mémoire des hommes - Fiche

Not easy to see the dates when he received military citation s but as far I can read

he received on 2/2/1916 the medaille militaire , the Croix de Guerre on 29/1/1916, and la Legion d'Honneur on 13/10/1916-Each dates certainly
corresponding to one of his victory

Hi Froggy,

He and Sergent Astor made a claim for an Albatros which fell into Lake Amatove on 25 April 1916, but I am not sure if that was his second or third victory.
