September 1917
21st No 3 Sectn. have gone up to Ypres on road construction & No 3 are working in shifts near Hooge. The others are continuing with the "Bow" huts on which we will be for a considerable time in all probabilities. No further news has been received regarding yesterday's stunt & the infantry are now consolidating the new line under the charge of the 1st & 2nd div. Engrs, ready for another "hop-over" Fritz counter-attacked to-night after a heavy bombardment which was retaliated by our own artillery, but we do not know the results yet. At dusk to-night one of Fritzs planes came over above the clouds & dived onto one of our ballons, setting it alight with his machine gun. At about 10 P.M. another of his planes came over, but the search-lights found him & before he had time to get back, the gunners brought him down in flames.
