On 2 February 1916, the unit was credited with a brace of Voisins downed - one to Ernst von Althaus for his third and another to Berthold for his initial confirmed claim. The two Voisins were recorded as falling in the area of Chaulnes, southwest of Peronne, but only Voisin 3 1321 from Escadrille VB 108 was lost. The pilot, Cpl Jacquin was taken PoW but the gunner Soldat Segaud was killed by Berthold's fire. Some sources have suggested that the date of von Althaus' victory was incorrectly recorded, and was actually a Voisin or Nieuport downed on 3 February.
However, the weather had cleared by noon, and in the late afternoon British aircraft were reported to be approaching from the southwest at Arras. Four Fokkers from KEK Douai took off to intercept them, led by Immelmann. At about 1700 hrs German time, the Fokkers caught up with a flight of FE 2b two-seater fighters from No 25 Sqn. Armed with a flexible Lewis machine gun for the observer and a fixed forward-firing Lewis for the pilot, the 'Fees' could be formidable opponents when flown by an experienced crew.

On 12 June he had written in a letter; 'Next week I am to have a Staffel composed solely of Fokker singleseaters here, and 1 shall be its leader. 1 am to have six machines, and shall be an independent commander. 1 made no efforts to get this - they pushed it on me against my will. But now that 1 have taken the job on, 1 find it great fun, and 1 shall take care to make it into a very special Staffel. ' Kurt Wintgens' sixth victory came the same day that Hohndorf got his fifth (17 June).
