Scrap over the house

Wednesday March 31 1915

Weather still fine. Scrap (an aerial dogfight) over the house. Airman driven off by German m/c gun. Crumps falling heavily round pond opposite. Good job they don’t come a bit nearer. 4 casualties at crossroads.

Found the line dissed

Saturday March 27 1915

Jock and I walked towards Ypres. Heavy shrapnel 50 yards ahead on road. Watched operations from behind a tree. Later went out with Jock Booth on the line over the exposed road. Found the line dissed (destroyed?) by a 90lb shrapnel, 4 lines O.O.O (out of order?).
