Diary Entry - 1st July, 1916

Saturday at the guns. In the afternoon, Siggers and I worked hard on a mine at the entrance of the new Mess and, although we worked for three solid hours, we did not seem to make much of a hole. At twelve thirty pm the Division did a very heavy strafe on some craters to the right of the 15th and a regular whirlwind of shells went over for half an hour and gradually died away. This night fire is usually connected with raids done by the infantry but we very seldom hear with what results.
