Hi

From the National Archives, part of a document, 'Notes on the Co-operation of Aeroplanes with Tanks During the Recent Fighting', dated 10.9.18. that details what No. 73 Squadron were actually doing at this time in conjunction with No. 8 Squadron.  They were the support squadrons for the Tank Corps and were detailed to deal with German guns being used as anti-tank guns.
