SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14th

So glad you saw young Wingfield. Such a nice boy. Delighted he is getting on all right. They Bosche has been very active all day. Began at 10.00 a.m., when the T.M.’s shelled our front line for ¾ hour. We gave him heavy stuff back, but he put some more ones about 12.30 p.m. He was active all round from 3.00 p.m., and finally gave us a dose of heavy stuff at Bn. H.Q. from 4.45 to 5.30 p.m. Some very near, and one actually hitting the Elephant. Tables and shelves tumbled down, and my torch was broken, and a spout of water rose from the floor, but no one was touched. In fact we have escaped any casualties today, wonderful to say. I am getting our Heavies to shell his Bde. and Bn. H.Qs., which I hope will tickle him up. Padre went to see Buchanan and Kiely and found them both doing well, though the former had had his eye out. Duke was down today. He is a nice fellow and always helpful. I had left my despatch case unfastened; it was hurled to the floor and articles scattered.
