‘At 7am three of our aeroplanes came over from the direction of the enemy lines, evidently returning from a bombing raid, the enemy shelled them very hard with shrapnel. At about 4pm a cruiser appeared out from Imbros and fired a few shells at enemy guns their side of Achi Baba, her fire was directed by a captive balloon from a balloon ship which accompanied her. Spent the evening with R. Clarke at the 2nd Fld Amb Camp.’
