Sunday 1st November 1942

What a quiet night! All was silent whilst I was on sentry-go, except for a little bombing and sporadic gunfire. In between, there were times of utter peace.

Tonight we fire a barrage in support of an attack by the NZ's and others. Have had a pretty hectic time getting up the ammo – 500 rounds per gun for the barrage and 200 per gun in reserve. All is ready now.

The Aussies are still holding their ridge, in the face of attacks by the 90th Light Div. They now have 2000 prisoners.

Tyrer has gone to “X”; so I am now “K” W/T operator, as well as being the battery captains ack.
