Diary Entry - 13th, 14th and 15th March, 1916

Monday there was nothing to report. Tuesday, I was at the guns and the Bosch expended about 350 rounds of 4.2 and 5.9 hows on the field behind us, a lot of rounds were used on trying to find the 60-pounders. They eventually found them and gave them a lot of pills but, beyond shattering a house in their vicinity, they did no damage. In the afternoon, they were at the 18th London, directly behind us, and gave them a very bad time but only knocked out one man and had many close shaves to pits but did not actually get a direct hit. Wednesday was spent at the O.B. It was a splendid day and I could see for about 20 miles but, as we had gone over our ammunition allowance on Tuesday, I could not fire. I must add that for some reason of GHQ's we are cut down to 5 rounds per gun per day .
