Heavy shelling at St. Eloi & Dickebusch.
To Dickebusch & inspect the interior of church also graves of P.P.’s. Lance Corporal W.J. Huston’s is in good shape. I trim it off. After a burial service I meet the parson (chaplain) a Captain Sherring of St. Paul’s Church Fort William.
We enter the church together (with Pvt Carey) and I find a nose cap of a shell (German). I give it to Capt. Sherring who is much pleased.
Witness aerial duel & bombardment by enemy. Our plane dodges backwards & forward amidst the shells. After half hour reconnaissance our plane returns safely to our lines. Heavy bombardment during night.
