Mounting Losses, August–October 1917

‘The aircraft was smashed to pieces’

The plan to take Passchendaele Ridge entailed a parallel advance along the North Sea coast on the left, coupled with the British Fifth Army moving forward from the Ypres Salient roughly along the axis of the Ypres-Roulers railway. The Germans foiled the coastal phase by launching a successful attack there on 10 July, thus the assault on the ridge became an isolated operation. When the Battle of Passchendaele (or Third Ypres) opened, fifty squadrons (including five RNAS) and the Special Duty flight totalling 858 aeroplanes opposed an estimated 600 German machines, roughly one third of them fighters and including Richthofen’s ‘circus’.

Detailed orders were issued to squadrons directly supporting the corps and those acting further afield. During the preceding night, No 100 Sqn flying FE2b and BE2e machines would hit selected airfields and then on a second raid

… bomb any camps, billets, dumps, trains, railway stations or lighted aerodromes seen in the area Ypres-Menin-Courtrai-Ingelmunster-Roulers-Bixschoote … The type of bomb for both raids is left to OC, No 100 Squadron.

Other RFC squadrons were required to machine-gun enemy airfields at dawn to discourage German airmen from interfering with the ground advance. Underlining the separate nature of the British air arms, Maj Gen Sir Hugh Trenchard would ‘be glad if the Senior Officer, RNAS Dunkirk, could consider the possibility’ of bombing specified targets during the night.

In poor visibility moving north-east from Ypres on 31 July, twelve divisions of Gen Sir Hubert Gough’s Fifth Army advanced a mile before heavy rain and enemy counter-attacks halted them. French troops on their left and the British Second Army on the right also made limited progress. Thereafter intermittent downpours so saturated the ground already churned up by artillery shells that Gough’s troops failed to regain momentum. After three weeks of disjointed forward movement, the axis of the attack was switched southwards to Gen Sir Herbert Plumer’s Second Army. In all, it would take thirteen weeks to overrun Passchendaele Ridge at a cost of 238, 313 men from the two armies, 65,319 of them killed or missing.

A cloud base of 500–800ft on the first morning and torrential rain in the afternoon, frustrated full execution of the aerial plans. Despite the conditions, fifty-eight patrols were flown over the battlefield. The reluctance of British infantry to reveal their positions forced the machines low in an effort to chart the extent of the advance. This exposed them to small-arms fire, and thirty aeroplanes were badly damaged. Beyond the battlefield, twenty-seven Martinsydes attacked enemy airfields with 20lb bombs and a 230lb weapon (110lbs of explosive) specially designed to be released from 400ft. Twenty-three aerial combats were recorded on 31 July; eight enemy machines destroyed. Four British airmen were killed, three taken prisoner and eight wounded.

The contribution of the RFC for the remainder of the battle remained at the mercy of the weather. For example, strong winds and heavy rain vastly disrupted artillery co-operation for the five days after 1 August; low cloud, mist and smoke made flying difficult on 16 August when ground troops launched an attack in the Langemarck area.
