  6. TheGronkster, Great photo. I found this on the net that might be of some help: - Max Immelmann in Valenciennes after his 7th victory. A Morane Saulnier Type P from the British Air Force was shot down by Max Immelmann over Raismes on December 15, 1915. The aircraft has serial number 5087 and was flown by Charles Edward Tudor-Jones, second lieutenant of the N ° 3 Squadron, reports the Commonwealth War Graves Commission . Tudor-Jones is resting at the Raismes Communal Cemetery (Plot II, row A, grave 3). The shooter was Lieutenant Alan Victor Hobbs who was killed in the process. He is buried next to the pilot (Plot II, Row A, Grave 4). Royal Flying Corps MS.24 Type P linen.m.miraheze.org/wiki/Morane-Saulnier_Type_P
