"Requesting Acknowledgement of my 57th Victory...Date 2nd July 1917. Time 10.20am. Place: Deulemont, between the lines. Plane:R.E.8. No details as the plane fell burning. I attacked the foremost plane of an enemy formation. After my first shots the Observer collapsed. Shortly afterwards the pilot was wounded mortally, I believe, by my shots. The R.E. fell and I fired into it at a distance of fifty yards. The plane caught fire and dashed to the ground. (Signed) Baron Von Richtofen".
