Lt. Earle Nichols was part of the 163rd Aero Squadron, which was a De Havilland DH-4 squadron for the 2nd Day Bombardment Group. This Group was organized on 1 November 1918 and was Major George E. Reinburg's first Air Service command at the Front. The group was ready for operations by 9 November but bad weather prevented them from flying any bombing missions before the Armistice.
