Thank Zeffie for the postcard of the broom at Beacon Hill. It is quite good but one would like to see the salt water indicated for that is such a set off to the yellow.
The news shells that both sides use with very quick acting fuses make one respect shellfire a great deal more. They hardly make a mark on a metalled road & there being no crater the burst is low & widely scattered.
I hope the Boche like ours. Soon I may see the result of all this noise from our guns
