Diary Entry - 21st August, 1916

Monday, the Bosch kept exceedingly quiet all day. In the afternoon at four thirty p.m. we had to support the infantry, who were to bomb down a trench to the south of machine-gun house. It was splendid the way the guns opened up on the tick at zero time. The whole country seemed to roar with shells in a second, all screaming towards Bosch lines, and, before zero time, barely a gun could be heard. That evening, Armytage and self dined with the 48s.
