For more of those german aircraft that are giving the HMS Endymion  problems the great war forum 1914-1918invasionzone.com Salonika and the Balkens section a posting 100 years ago this day in the Balkans. 16 july 17 has 2 aircraft dropping 8 bombs 5 on shore 3 in the sea 1 Greek patient in British hospital killed

The aircraft is from either TFA 6 (Turkish Flieger Abrelung Flying unit) or SFA 3 (See Fliger Abtelung) most likely the latter

Also on the Sub sarahran Africa section there is a post on QF 12 Pdr 8 cwt which has just been recovered and may have been from HMS Hyacinth
