The Wartime Memories Project - The Great War - Day by Day



10th July 1915

On this day:


  • 6th London Brigade RFA in Action   15th London Battery fired 16 rounds on the enemy’s first line trench G.28.b.5. It also fired at a working party of 6 German gunners cutting cover at G.23.0.8, whereupon they retired. 16th London Battery fired 22 rounds from G.28.b.9.5 – G.25.b.5.0 in registration and retaliation. 17th London Battery registered G.34.a – G.34.c. Arrangements were concluded whereby the 17th Lon Battery will fire with the new 80 fuze ammunition. The whole Brigade therefore is now firing with this ammunition.
