Max Immelmann recounts an early encounter with 24 Sqn. 
April 25th 1916:

'I took off about 1100 hrs and met two English biplanes south of Bapaume. I was about 700 meters higher and therefore came up with them very quickly and attacked one. He seemed to heel over after a few shots, but unfortunately I was mistaken. The two worked splendidly together in the course of the fight and put 11 shots into my machine.The petrol tank, the struts on the fuselage, the undercarriage and the propeller were hit. I could only save myself by a nose-dive of 100 meters. Then at last the two left me alone. It was not a nice business.'
