THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st

Lovely day. Heavy strafe on. Begun by us at 3.00 p.m. We put over all sorts of heavy stuff into their trenches opposite, and fairly blew them up. Big bits of timber flying up like bits of straw. Had an important patrol out last night, and was up in front line waiting for its return from 11.30 p.m. till 1.30 a.m. Luckily very fine night.


Footnote

The patrol was carried out by Lieutenant Godson and Second Lieutenants Richard Miles (who would lead the raid) and Patrick Kiely, and an unnamed Sergeant; it was a reconnaissance for a raid that would take place on 12 October.
