Diary Entry - 15th July, 1918

Go along the FOO wire in the morning and mend five breaks and then have it cut behind us before reaching No. 10 post. Major goes up to cover the daylight raid done by 60th. It consists of two men and an NCO, their objective being an enemy's post which he occupies at night only. He fires all the afternoon with hundreds of heads up over the top watching the men crawl across no-man's land. As a matter of fact they even stood on top and the Hun took no notice, so they consolidated the post and stayed there.
