In his first dogfight on May 7, 1917, his flight commander, Albert Ball, was shot down while Rhys Davids survived an attack by Kurt Wolff of Jasta 11. On September 23, 1917, during one of the most famous dogfights of the war, he shot down the Fokker Triplane of Werner Voss. When Carl Menckhoff arrived on the scene in an Albatros Scout and attempted to assist Voss, Rhys Davids shot him down too. The following month, Rhys Davids was shot down by Karl Gallwitz of Jasta Boelcke.
