Five hours of artillery fire from guns of every calibre and from trench mor- fire as well as frontal fire being directed at the salient angla where a watery subsoil makes dug- trenches at some points. Against thi German curtain of fire the British guns sent their curtain of fire.

They had full packs with blankets, each carried a flash of rum and one of coffee, a pocket electric flashlight and full rations, evidently having prepared for a big advance. When they pressed on still confident that their guns had blazed a way they were checked by the fire of the Cana- dians who unflinchingly stuck to tlie support trenches under a shower of shells that lasted from S.30 o'clock in the morning until 11 o'clock at night, when re-enforcements came and a counter attack was begun. Tales abound of the heroism of small units at points where the bat- tle Was most violent. At one place on the front line where the trenches had been smashed to the level of the ground the surviving Canadians rush- ed out to face the overwhelming Ger- nian charge, and die.
