Diary Entry - 8th February, 1918

It rained all day and the Hun was rather offensive and bumped HQ twice from the direction of Marcoing with a 5' 9" battery. At two, the second time, we got the 12" onto him and very soon shut him up. Anticipating more crumps at nine thirty p.m. we got the 12-inch to fire three or four rounds on him at nine twenty five, nipping him in the bud so to speak, and there was no more trouble from that battery while I was there.
