1916 – October 14

All quiet and no sniping. To-day about 100 of them fired on my working parties near camp. I went out and my orderly officer was pleased to note that two bullets dropped near him, so he had really been under fire for the first time. Under fire again at night, they sniped heavily and aimed well at my part of the camp. I got one bullet through my mosquito curtains, another through my tent, and an explosive bullet in the tree just behind my tent.
