Capture of a Naval Gun

Wednesday 6th November 1918

The attack begun on 4th continued today. Opposition has been patchy but the weather has continued its relentless opposition, slowing things to a crawl at times. 1st Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, after its success at Jolimetz yesterday advanced to a village called la Poyquerie. herethe enemy artillery was their chief opponent. they were shelled out of the village this morning and as dusk was falling a couple of hours ago the same thing happened again. Thirteen casualties have been the result. The adjutant informed me that during operations they captured a six inch naval gun, the sort of thing one would expect to see on a light cruiser.
