Enemy open up with serenade of heavy shells Shrl & H.E.
I worked yesterday from 8 am until 1:30 am this morning.
Enemy busy shelling Ypres & Ramparts with 5.9 & 10.5 in HE & shrl.
A Pte. Bishop & self go along Ramparts & canal all around Ypres. Troops shoot fish in the moat. Two swans are still in moat around Ypres & the female has a nest of young ones.
*H.E. Shells – High Explosive Shells were shells with a strong steel case, a bursting charge and a fuse, the fuse would detonate the bursting charge turning the shell into hot sharp shrapnel that would be discharged at high velocity
