Diary Entry - 9th August, 1917

Do duty at the guns. All day the Hun shelled what I thought was an open field on the right of our position and most of his rounds fell in a crop. In the evening I discovered he was shooting at some 60 pdrs but don't think he could have done much damage. Hun aeroplanes were very active all morning and the archies were kept busy. One of our machines flew over very low and brought down a Hun balloon in flames, getting back quite safely. An infanteer officer of the Royal Berks was attached to us in the afternoon. He is an absolute dud and am sure is mad.
