Letter from Sir Lawrence to his father, Hugh Lee III Pattinson

Sir Lawrence discusses an air combat between 5 of his machines and 5 'Huns'. He remarks that his senior Flight Commander, Captain Naughton, and his observer managed to bring down two planes, one of the pilots being seen to fall out of his machine in the air. He notes that the same Captain and observer brought down two planes before, and describes their technique.
