Location of 92 Sqn in August 1918

A discussion has arisen in the "Who Is This" topic in "Other Great War Chat" about the presence (or otherwise) of Major "Mary" Coningham, OC 92 Sqn, at the battle of Amiens in 1918.

 

Can anybody assist please ?

Drionville to 1 August 1918, then Serny until 26 September.  Coningham claimed a brace of Fokker DVIIs on 11 August over Nesle aerodrome, one crashed and one out of control.  His next (and last) claim was another Fokker DVII on 5 September west of Cambrai, the pilot falling out.

Thanks. Any explanations as to why the squadron has "Amiens" as a battle honour ?

Nesle is south-east of Amiens, so I suppose No 92 Sqn's operations were in support of the Battle of Amiens, which kicked off on 8 August 1918.
