Contact Aeroplane Scheme

A Royal Flying Corps BE2c

Thursday 5th July 1917

8th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment has today undertaken another very successful Contact Aeroplane Scheme with 2 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps, as they did on 22nd June. The aeroplane involved plotted the positions of the flares accurately and received the battalion’s messages sent by ground panel and lamp. This afternoon was Battalion Sports, which proved very enjoyable. This evening is a concert given by Divisional "Fancies".
