As always, wonderful reports and stories and letters everyone. Thank you all for sharing them here.
Sous-lieutenant Tremblay's lastest sortie was a recce of the Bosche lines just west of Villers-Carbonnel. He had never seen such a sustained bombardment before. It was in effect as he approached the lines and continued at an unbelievable intensity for the entire 20 minutes of the reconnaissance. He and his G/O actually felt pity for the poor enemy troops down in those trenches. It must have been hell.
(really, in all my time in OFF and WOFF I have never seen this kind of intensity - it was frighteningly awesome)
