Tis Sunday & we don’t know it. All day long & into evening there is very heavy shelling. We have the upper hand & shell him along the line as far as the eye can see. I go to Empire Redoubt. Narrowly escape a shell which burst close to me.
Pont St. a good trench now a broken mass & all in the course of an hour. Previous to this I had walked down it when the 1st shell struck it with a passion.
Two red machines up today but they do not engage ours.
Heavy bombardment on our left @ 8 to 10 pm.
*A “redoubt” is a fort or fort system usually consisting of an enclosed defensive emplacement outside a larger fort. It may be constructed of earthworks, stone or brick. And may be a permanent structure or a hastily-constructed temporary fortification.
