Tuesday 10th August 1915- Diary of HV Reynolds
Please note: Care has been taken to transcribe these entries without alteration to preserve the original language of Herbert Vincent Reynolds.
‘Early this morning the war boats and field guns heavily bombarded the enemy positions. Our aircraft have been extremely active today. At about 7pm an enemy plane attempted to destroy the captive balloon on the balloon ship, but one of our planes drove him off and he was forced to return back over his own lines. I have been rather unwell for the past week but went down to it today while on ration fatigue and was unable to go with my mates into the line tonight at 7pm.’
