Captain Albert Ball VC DSO MC
British Air Ace of World War One
BaseBiographyMiscellaneousContact

The very few pilots of the Great 'Aerial' War of 1914-18 were not just lucky.  They also used their unbelievable bravery alongside other attributes, such as Skill, experience, instinctive aggression and guile. All these terms contributed to the making of an air 'ACE'. The following is a list, in tabulation form, of all the combats that Captain Albert Ball is known to have taken part in. And where he might have claimed a moral or physical 'Victory'.​
