Diary Entry - 7th February, 1918

As soon as Cruikshank got back from Rocket OP at twelve thirty, I set out for Battalion HQ (left) where I relieved Shipley of D36. The 17th Fusiliers were in and, as their CO Western was away, Major Hole commanded. They sent out an offensive patrol that night but the Hun was not to be found in the post where they thought he was and nothing happened. HQ was a comfortable spot in a sunken road with good roomy dugouts made by the Australian tunnelers. The Hun crumped us at nine fifty, putting one right on top, but it only shook things about a bit.
