Nosy Aircraft

Wednesday 29th December 1915: Yesterday the 6th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment were acting as working parties in the vicinity of Hannescamps, being behind the line at Bienvillers-au-Bois. The Germans shelled them all day, on and off, shelling Hannescamps itself in the afternoon. Six German aeroplanes were seen to come over British lines at about this time, four getting through and the other two being turned back by our aircraft. Those that got through were seen to head south-west towards Souastre, up to some mischief no doubt.
