Diary Entry - 18th March, 1916

Up at Lorette all day. It was a fair day and I managed to spot the heavy battery, which I proved to be the one shelling our battery. You could see the gun pits plainly (of the left section). The right were behind the buildings of the electric works. It had been reported that the battery was receiving a few shells and so I sent down two or four times, each time the guns fired, and they reported the shells having arrived a few seconds later. We only fired about eight shells all day. Mead was with me and we shot them for his benefit.
