Date: October 18th 1917

Oct. 18 - We had reveille at 3:30 a.m., breakfast at 4 and started for up the line at 4:30 arriving at our work about daylight at 7 o'clock. We started in to grade in dead earnest this morning and all was quiet until 10 o'clock when a bombing squad of Germans came over and dropped a bomb a long side a party of our men causing four casualties, one killed. At noon the Germans opened up with artillery on our sector, and as the morning experience had slightly put the "wind up" the boys. We left the work and came to camp at 1 o'clock. Bombed in our camp at night, but no one hurt.
