Read today's entry from Harry Gissing's 1914-18 war diaries

May 19, 1917

Just an ordinary day with Fritz sending a few over near by. Watched a Howitzer battery firing in the afternoon, and could plainly see the shell by standing behind the gun as she fired. Heavy barrage just on dusk and big stuff from the enemy.
