Letter to 9th Canadian Artillery Brigade 13 September 1918

G35/4

September 13th 1918

TO/ Major Cosgrave,

Cmdg. 9th Brigade C.F.A.

 

 

Dear Cosgrave,

The barrage was excellent.  During the intense period it kept the Hun’s Machine Guns absolutely down.  He opened up as soon as the intense firing stopped.

 

We were able to establish posts along the bank but did not succeed in kicking a pocket of Huns out of the Kiln as further operations would have prevented the relief, which was in progress, before daylight.

 

Many thanks for your cordial assistance.

 

Signature unreadable

Lieut Colonel

Cmdg 42nd Canadian Battn. R.H.C.
