    The following account from http://www.sahs-soissons.org/gg_14_18/pechenard_martyr_soissons.pdf (in French) may refer to this image. It talks of artillery response, shortly before sunset on Saturday,26 September, 1914 to a German plane flying overhead. It didn't say that the plane was shot down but the account states that the fire was extremely fierce and came probably from the British lines.
