Diary Entry - 15th August, 1916

Tuesday. In the morning Major Powell and Dean (the new subaltern, who has been with the battery about three days now) and also Walrond went up to Trones Wood to see if anything in the shape of wire could be seen from Dyson's OP on the German frontline we cover. They returned about eleven, reporting that they could see no wire and that an infantry patrol would have to go out and examine the no man's land. Dixon, who had gone up to Waterlot Farm on the previous evening, returned about midday, reporting that the infantry had been out the previous night and discovered that there was a little wire. No. 1 gun had been very busy erecting a new cupola, just on the left of their old position, and had got it just about completed by dark and ready for sandbagging in the morning
