The weather remains bad, while the state of the aerodrome is deplorable to operate under these conditions. The decision is, then, taken to go and examine the airfield of Vitry-en-Artois as an alternative. After its activity during the previous days, the B Flight is left to rest while the A Flight patrols the Amiens – Péronne sector under the leadership of Squadron Leader Arthur V. Harvey between 10h30 and 15h00.
