August 8, 1918
I commence this at St. Acheul, Amiens, the 8th of the series, at a moment when we are in the midst of a successful offensive. Following on the Marne success, preparations were rapidly made here for a large attack, and in a week from when its first signs were evident it was launched. Large numbers of guns, tanks and cavalry were brought up with great rapidity, and now we see the enemy taken completely by surprise and being severely defeated.
No official communiques have yet been published, but we know that the number of prisoners and guns captured is large. Slept well during the day, and at 5 p.m. found the wounded still coming in with a large percentage of German. The majority of these were left over until our own chaps were dealt with, and during the night we had a very busy time putting the huns through as well as new arrivals. All night long we were dealing with huns, and only an occasional Aussie or Tommy. Truly ‘tis a great effort and we are anxiously awaiting news.
