PAT O'BRIEN- JR.!
Captured by the Hun*.
I shall not forget the 17th of (
August, 1017. t killed two Huns In J
the double-seated machine in the [
morning, another In the' evening, and j
then I Was captured myself. I may
have spent more eventful days in my
life, but I can't recall any Just now.
That morning, In crossing the line
on early morning patrol, I noticed
two German balloons. I decided that
as soon as my patrol was over I
would go oft on my own hook and see
what a, German balloon looked like
at close quarters.
These observation balloons are used j
by both sides In conjunction with the
artillery. A man sits up fn the bal
loon with a wireless apparatus nnd di
rects the firing of the guns. From his
point of vantage he can follow the
work of his own artillery with a re
• markahle degree of accuracy and et
the same time he can observe the ene
my's movements and report them.
The-Germans are very good at this j
work, and they use a great number of I
these balloons. It was considered a
very important part of our work to
keep them out of the sky.
There are two ways of going after a
•bnlloon In a machine. One of them is
to cross the lines at a low altitude, Hy
ing so near the ground that the man
with the antiaircraft gun can't bother
you. You fly along until you get to the
level of the balloon and if, in the
meantime, they have not drawn ftie
balloon down, you open fire on It and
the bullets you use will set it on fire
If they land.
The other way Is to fly over where
you know the balloons to be, put your
machine In a spin so that they can't
hit you, get above them, spin over the
balloon and then open fire. In going
back over the line you cross at a few
This Is one of the hardest Jobs In
the service. There Is less danger in
attacking an enemy's aircraft.
Nevertheless, I had made up my
mind to either get those balloons or
make them descend, and I only hoped
that they would stay on the Job until
I had a chance 'at them.
When our two hours' duty Was up,
therefore, I dropped out of the forma
tion as we crossed the lines and turned
I was at a height of 15,000 feet, con
siderably higher than the balloons.
Shutting my motor off, I dropped down
through the clouds, thinking to find
the balloons at about five or six miles
behind the German lines.
Just as I came out of the cloud
banks I saw below me, about a thou
sand .feet, a two-seater hostile ma
chine doing urtjllery observation and
directing the German guns. This wus
at a point about four miles behind the
Evidently the German artillery saw
me and put out ground signals to at
tract the Hun machine's attention, for
( s#w the observer quit his work and
grab his gun, while their pilot stuck
the nose of his machine straight
But they were too late to escape me.
t was diving toward them at a speed
of probably two hundred miles an
hour, shooting all the time as fast as
possible. Their only chance lay In
the possibility thnt the force of my
drive might break my wings. I knew
my danger In that direction, but as
soon as I came out of my dive the
Huns would have their chance to get
me, und I knew I had to get them first
and take a chance on my wings hold
Fortunately some of my first bullets
found their murk, and I was ajile to
come out of my dive at about four
thousand feet. They never came out
But right then came the hottest sit
uation In the air I had ever experi
enced up to that time. The depth of
my dive had brought me within reach
of the machine guns from the ground,
and they also put a barrage around me
of shrapnel from antiaircraft guns
and I Jiad an opportunity to "ride the
barrage," as they call it In the It. F. C.
To make the situation more Interest
ing, they began shooting "flaming on
ions" at me. "Flaming onions" are
rockets shot from a rocket gun. They
are used to hit a machine when It Is
flying low, nnd they are effective up
to about five thousand feet Some
times they are shot up one after an
other in strings of about eight, and
they are one of the hardest things to
go through. If they hit the machine,
It Is bound to catch fire and then the
Jig Is ,up.
Ail the time, too, I was being at
tacked by "Archie"—the antiaircraft
gun. I escaped the machine guns and
j the "flaming onions," but "Archie," the
antiaircraft lire, got me four or five
times. Every time a bullet plugged
me, or rather niy machine. It made a
loud bang, on account of the tension
on the material covering the wings.
None of their shots hurt me until
I was about a mile from our lines, and
then they hit my motor. Fortunately,
I still had altitude enough* to drift on
to our own side of the lines, for my
motor was completely out of cau)mis
sion. They Just raised the dickens
with me all the time I was descend
ing, and I began to think I would
strike the ground before crossing the
I line, but" theTe was a~s!lght wind In
j my favor, and Ji carried nie two miles
| behind our lines. There the balloons
I had gone out to get had the satisfaf
| tion of "pin-pointing" me. Through
j the directions which they were able to
I give to their artillery they commenced
' shelling my machine where It lay.
This particular work is to direct the
fire of their artillery, and they are
used Just as the artillery observation
airplanes are. Usually two men are
stationed in each balloon. They ascend '
to a height of several thousand feet
about five miles behind their own lines
I and are equipped with wireless and
I signaling apparatus. They watch the '
! burst of their own artillery, check up
the position, get the range, nnd direct
the next shot.
When conditions are favorable they
are able to direct the shots so accu
rately that It Is quick work destroying
the object of their attack. It was such
a balloon as this that got my position,
marked me out, called for an artillery
shot, and they commenced shelling my
I machine where It lay. If I had got
: the two balloons tnstend of the air
plane, I probably would not have lost
my machine, for he would In all proba
bility have gone on home and not both- \
ered abftut getting my range and caus
ing the destruction of my machine.
I landed in a part of the country
that was literally covered with shell
holes. Fortunately my machine was
not badly damaged by the forced land
ing. I leisurely got out, walked around
it to see what the .damage was, and
concluded thnt it could be easily re
paired. In fact, I thought if I could
find a space long enough between shell
holes to get a start b*fore leaving the
ground (hat I would be able to fly on
I was still examining my plane and
considering the matter of a few slight
repairs, without any particular thought
for my own safety In that unprotected
Bpot, when a shell came whizzing
through the air, knocked me to the
ground and lnnded a few feet away.
It had no sooner struck than I made
a run for cover and crawled Into a
shell hole. I would have liked to get
farther away, but I didn't know where
the ncKt shell would burst, and I
thought I was fairly safe there, so I
squatted down and let them blaze
The oflly damage I suffered was
from the mud which splattered up In
my face and over my clothes. That
was my Introduction to a shell hole,
and I resolved right there that the in
fantry could have all the shell-hole
fighting they wanted, hut it did not
appeal to mo, though they live In them
through many n long night and I had
only sought shelter there for a few
After the Germans had completely
demolished ipy machine and ceased
firing, I waited there a short time,
feartng pethaps they might send over
a lucky shot, hoping to get me after
all. But evidently they concluded
enough shells had been wasted on one
man. I crawled out cautiously, shook
the mud off, and I looked over In the
direction where my machine hnd once
been. There wasn't enough left for a
decent souvenir, but nevertheless I got
a few, "such as they were," und read
ily observing that nothing could be
done with what was left, I made my
way back to lnfuntry headquarters,
where I wus able to telephone In a
A little "later one of our nutonio
blles came out after me and took me
back to our airdrome. Most of my
squadron thonght I wus lost beyond I
Joubt, and never expected to see me
again; brkmy friend, Puul Ituney, had
field out that I was all right, and us
( was afterwards told, said, "Don't
•end for another pilot; that Irishman
will be back. If he has to walk." And
he knew that the only thing that kept
me from walking was the fact that our
own automobile had bP?n"Sent out to
bring me home.
I had lots to think about that day,
and I had learned many things; one
was not to have too much confidence
In my own ability. One of the men In
the squadron told nie that I hud bet
ter not take those chances; "that it
was going to be a long war and I
wonld have plenty of opportunities to
be killed without deliberately "wishing
them on" myself. Later I was to learn
the truth of his statement.
That nhiht my "flight"—each squad
ron Is divided Into three flights, con
sisting of six men each —got ready to
go out again. ' As I started to put On
my tunic I noticed that I was not
marked up for duty as usual.
I asked the commanding officer, a
mpjor. what the reason for that wan,
Und he replied that he thought I had
done enough for one day. However, j
I knew that If I did not go, someone
else from another "flight" would have ;
to take my place, and I Insisted upon !
going up with my patrol as usual, and
the major reluctantly consented. Had
he known what was In store for me, I
am sure he wouldn't have changed his
mind so readily. I
As It was we had only five machines
for this patrol, anyway, because as we
crossed the lines one of them had to
drop out on account of motor trouble.
Our patrol was up at 8 p. in- and up
to within ten minutes of thnt hour It
had been entirely uneventful.
At 7:50 p. m., however, while we
were flying at a height of 13,000 feet,
we observed three other English ma-

chines which were about 8,000 feet
below us pick a fight with nine Hun
I knew right, then that we were In
for it, because I could see over toward
the ocean a whole, flock of Hun ma
chines which evidently had escaped
the -attention of our scrappy country
men below us.
j So we dove down on those nine
I At first the fight was fairly even.
There were eight of us to them.
But Boon the other machines which I
had seen in the distance, and which
were flying even higher than we were,
arrived on'the scene, and when they.
In turn, dove down on us, there wus
Just twenty of them to our eight!
.Four of them singled me out. I was
diving, and they dived right down after
me, shooting as they came. Their
tracer bullets were coming closer to'
me every moment. These tracer bul
lets are balls of flte which ennble the
shooter to follow the course his bul
lets are taking and to correct his aim
accordingly. They do no more harm
to a pilot If he is hit than an ordinary
bullet, but If they hit the petrol tank,
good night! When a machine entches

ting It out It takes le*s than a min
ute for the fabric to burn off the wings
and then the machine drops like nn
arrow, leaving a trail of smoke like a
• As their tracer bullets came closer
and closer to me I realized that my
chances of escape were nil. Their very
next shot, I felt, must hit me.
j Once, some days before, when I was
flying over the line, I had watched a
fight above me. A German machine
was set on fire, and dived down
through our formation In flames on Its
way to the ground. The Hun wus div
ing at such a sharp angle that both
his wings came off, and as he passed
.within a few hundred feet of me I saw
the look of horror on his face.
Now, when I expected any moment j
to suffer a similar fate, I could not |
help thinking of that poor Hun's lust 1
look of agony,

I realized that my only chance lay
In mnklng un Immelman turn. This
maneuver was Invented by a German —
one of the greatest who &er flew and
who was killed in action sometime be
fore. This turn, which I made success
fully, brought one of their machines
light in front of me, and as he sailed
along barely ten yards away, I "had
the drop" on him, and he knew it
His white face and startled eyes I
can still see. He knew beyond ques
tion that his last moment had come,
because his position prevented his tak
ing aim at me, while my gun pointed
Straight at klin. My first tracer bullet
passed wfthln a yard of his head, the
second looked as If It hit his shoulder,
the third struck him in the neck, and
then I let him have the whole works,
and he went down In a spinning nose
1 j dive.
All this time the three other Hun
' i muehlnes were shooting away at me.
I could hear the bullets striking my
1 machine one after another. I hadn't
I the slightest Idea that I could ever
' beat off those three Iluiis. but there
' j was nothing for me to do but fight, nnd
' my hands were full.
' | In flgb'ing. your t machine is drop
' i ping, dropping all the time. I glanced
] at my Instruments, and my altitude
, was between 8,000 and 9,000 feet
' | While I wus still looking at the In
| struments, the whole blamed works
disappeared. A burst of bullets went
| Into the Instrument board and blew
I It to smithereens, soother bullet went
through lay upper lip, came out of the
, j roof of |ny mouth and lodged In my
j throat, and the next thlug 1 knew was
| when I came to In a German hospital
. the following morning at five o'clock,
1 German time.
I was a prisoner of war.
The hospital In which I found my
self on the morning after ray capture
was a private house made of brick,
1 very low and dirty, and not at all
1 adapted for use as a hospital. It had
evidently been used but a few doys on !
account of the big push that was tak
ing place at that time of the year, and
In nil probability would be abandoned
as soon as they hud found a better
In all, the house contained four;
rooms and a stable, which was by far
the largest of all. Although I never
looked Into this "wing" of the hospital,
I was told that it, too, was filled with
patients lying on beds of straw around
on the ground. Ido not know whether
they, too, were officers or privates.
The room In which I found myself
contained eight beds, three of which
were occupied by wounded German of
ficers. The other rooms, I imagined,
hud about the Bame number of beds as
mine. There were tjo Red Cross nurses
In attendance, Just orderlies, for this
was only un emergency hospital and
too near the firing line for nurses. The
orderlies were not old men nor very
young boys, as I had expected to find,
but young men In the prime of life,
who evidently hud been medical stu
dents. One or two of them, I discov
ered, were able to talk English, but
for some reason they would not tnlk.
Perhaps they were forbidden by the
officer In charge to do so.
In addition to the bullet wound In
my mouth I had a swelling from my
forehead to the back of my head al
most as big as my shoe—and thnt is
suying considerable. I couldn't move
nn inch without suffering Intense pain,
and when the doctor told me that I
had no bones broken I wondered how
a fellow would feel who had.
German officers visited me that
morning and told me that my machine
went down In a spinning nose dive
from a height df .between 8,000 and
9,000 feet, and they had the surprise
of their lives when they discovered
that I had not been dashed to pieces.
They had to cut me out of my machine,
which was riddled With shots and shat
tered to bits..
A German doctor removed the bullet
from my throat, and the first thing he
said to me when I came to was, "You
are an American I"
There was no denying It, because
the metal Identification disk on my
j wrist bore the Inscription:
U. S. A.
It. F. C."
Although I was suffering intense
agony, the doctor, who spoke perfect
English, Inslsteif upon cohverslng with
'* "You may be all right as a sports
man," he declared, "but you are a
d d murderer Just the siune for be
ing here. You Americans who got Into
this thing before America came into
the wur are no better than common
murderers and you ought to be treated
the snme way!"
The wound In my mouth mude It Im
possible for me to answer blin, and I
was suffering too much pain to be
hurt very much by anything he could
He asked me If I would like an
apple! I could Just us easily hsve
eaten a brick.
When he got no answers out of me,
he walked away disgustedly.
"You don't have to worry uny more,"
he declared, as a parting shot. "For
you the war Is over."
I was given a little broth later io
the day, aud as i begun to collect my
thoughts I wondered what hud hap
pened lo my comrades In the buttle
which had resulted so disastrously to
me. As I bi-gati to realize my plight
I worried less about my physical con
dition than the fact that, lis the doc
tod had [Kilnted oOt, for me the wur
was practically over. I hud been In It
but a short time, and now I would be
■ a prisoner for the duration of the war!
The next day some German flying
i officers visited me, and I must say they
treated me »ith great consideration.
They told me of the man I had brought
down. They sold he wus a Bavarian
1 and a fairly good pilot. They gave me
his hat as a souvenir and compliment
ed me 'to the fight 1 had put up.
My helmet, which wus of soft
leather, HIIS split from front to bail
by a bullet from a machine gun, nnd
they examined It with great Interest.
When they brought me my uniform 1
found that the star of my rank which
had been on my right shoulder strap
hail been shot off clean. The one on |
my left shoulder strap they asked me
for as n souvenir, as also my It. F. C.
badges, which I gave them. They al
lowed me to keep my "wings," which
I wore on my left breast, because they
. were aware that that Is the proudest
• possession of a British flying officer.
I think I am right In saying that the
only chivalry In this war on the Ger-
I man side of the trenches has been dls
| played by the officers of the German
j flying corps, which comprises the pick
l of Germany. They pointed out to me
j that 1 and mv comriifled were flchtlnt
purely for the love of It, whereas they
were fighting in defense of their coun
try, but still, they said, they admired
us for our sportsmanship. I had a no
tion to ask them If dropping bombs on
London and killing so many Innocent
people was In defense of their country,
but I was In no position or condition
to pick a quarrel at that time.
That same day a German officer was 1 "
brought Into the hospital and put In
the bunk next to mine. Of course t ei
casually looked at him, but did not
pay particular attention to him at that
time. He lay there for three or four
hours before I did take a real good
look at him. I was positive that he
could not speak English, and naturally
I did not say anything to him. Once
when I looked over In his direction his
eyes were on me, and to my surprise
he snld, very sarcastically, "What the
h—l are you looking at" and then
smiled. At this time I was Just be
ginning to say a few words, as my
wound had prevented me from talking,
but I sold enough to let htm know
what I was doing there and how I
happened to be there. Ho evidently
hnd heard my story from some of the
others, though, because he said It wus
too bad I had not broken my neck;
that he did not have much sympathy
with the flying corps anyway. He
asked me what port of America I came
from, nnd I told him "California."
After n few more questions he
learned that I hailed from Hun Fran
cisco, nnd then added to my distress
by saying, "How would you like to
have u good, Juicy steuk right out of
the Hofbrau?" Naturally I told him
it would "hit the spot," but I hnrdly
thought my mouth was In shape Just
then to eat It. I Immediately asked,
of course, what he knew about the
Hofbrau, and he replied, "I was con
nected with the place a good mnny
years, and I ought to know all about
After that this German officer nnd
I became rather chummy; Ulat Is, as
far as I could be chUmmy with an
enemy, and we whllcd away a good
many long hours talking about the
days we had spent In Bnn Francisco,
and frequently In the conversation one
of us would mention some prominent
Callfornlun, or some little Incident oc
curring there, with which we were

and thought the only thing for him to
do was to go back and aid In the de

he could not go .directly from Hun

well guarded by the English, so hu
boarded u boat for Bouth America.

didn't matter what his name was. I
did not know whether he meant that
the Germans would starve me out, or

time I am sure he did not figure on
dying. The first two or three days
I was In the hospital I thought surely
he would be up and gone long before
I was, but blood poisoning set In
about that time, and Just a few hours
before I left for Courtrul he died.
One of those days, while my, wound
was still very troublesome, I was
given an apple; whether It was just to
torment me, knowing that I could not
eat it, or whether for some other rea

Of course there was no chance of my
eating It, so when the officer had gone
and I discovered this Han Francisco
fellow looking at It rather longingly,
I picked It up, Intending to toss It
over to him. Hut he slioolt his head
and said, "If this was San Francinco

understand just why he refused the
apple, for he was usually sociable und
