27 July 1916

Posted by Dick on July 27, 1916
Enemy plane over about seven thirty this morning. The mountain battery did some pretty shooting but their guns weren't made for anti-aircraft. They have left for Salonika today and they are going to send us some proper "archies" up here, so we may bring one of those Fokkers down before long.

Got the detail out for the whole mobile column today; we shall be going out with the 156 Brigade when the stunt comes off. At present I am in charge of the right section but am very much afraid I shan't take them into action as Franklyn will have in all probability got over his indisposition by the time our strafe comes off. But still, you never know your luck.

Situation unchanged today. I am in charge of the telephone communication between the battery and F.O.O. tonight.
