Robert Loraine, 3 Squadron, noted on 1.11.1914 “Left at 2 pm with Pilot Birch on a Bleriot. The machine could not climb well with weight of bombs. Dropped bombs on Gheluwe at a height of 3,700 feet, 3 Reds, 10 hand grenades.” Target was the Kaiser. I assume that the ‘Reds’ were the same type of bomb mentioned by McCudden ?
