Diary Entry - 22nd August, 1917

I go to the OP at eleven a.m., as Sherman and the Major go up at ten, the latter to point out the front to the former. The front was quiet all day but the Hun shelled Harley Street in the morning and afternoon with five nines, searching back down the Cambrin Road too and along to Cuinchy. At eleven p.m. we project gas from Northampton Trench. The gas frightened me at first, as it seemed to be drifting towards us instead of the Bosche. In return we only received a few minnies along the line.
