Time up 11:25 time down 13:20 attacked at 30,000 feet NW of Koin at approx Butzweiler. I was on a photo reconnaissance sortie flying over Leverkusen. At 30,000 feet on a course of 340 degrees, I saw 4 ME 163s climbing out of cloud at 6,000 feet on my port side. I altered course to 270 degrees and they climbed very rapidly and passed overhead. At that moment I decided to look round and saw 1 ME 163 making a glide attack from the starboard astern and from above. I turned sharply to starboard and the enemy aircraft passed underneath me. When I first saw him the enemy aircraft was 400 yards away and had opened fire, the tracer passing behind. It appeared to be from one 20 or 30 mm cannon. The first four had then turned to port. I turned to port and, loosing height to 20,000 feet made back to base. No further attacks were made. Before this encounter I had been circling the Cologne area for approx 20 minutes, waiting for a gap in the cloud over my target. If you have any questions and require more images please late us know.

Second Lieutenant Keith Penicuik Ewart was born on 26 December 1892 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He enlisted into the 2nd Canadian Divisional Signal Company on 21 January 1915, being attested for the R. On 30 September 1916, and receiving his commission the following month. Second Lieutenant Ewart was killed in action on 4 January 1918 whilst flying a DH4; his observer, Lieutenant A. They are both buried at Niergnies Communal Cemetery, France. Westlake and Ewart both served with 27 Squadron RFC and on the morning of 4 January 1918 took off at 09.50/10.50 from the airfield. It was reported that they were then seen “gliding down from 13,000 feet south-west of Denain in combat with EA (enemy aircraft) on return from bomb run to Denain”. It’s possible that B 1542 was shot down by German ace Wilhelm Reinhard who claimed his seventh victory that day in the area. Both Ewart and Westlake were buried by the Germans at Niergnies – where they are still buried, the only two allied servicemen in the cemetery. 1914-15 Star 110 2.
