They thereby contributed greatly to the successes won by enabling our ground forces to move freely, w\th little interference or loss from enemy air attack. They also provided accurate informa­tion of enemy movements, and on many occa­sions inflicted considerable loss on his forces. The Army owes a special debt to Air Commo­dore R.
