Description
English: Members of the Australian Heavy Artillery capping 8 inch shells with '106' (instantaneous) fuses for the big gun on the left, at Verbranden Road. The 1st Australian Siege Battery took over this position on the morning of 26 September 1917 from 36th Battery, RGA, and before a gun could be put into action we suffered many casualties. This position being on a cross road, with a dump and dressing station alongside, was frequently shelled and bombed by the Hun (Germans). This position and the immediate vicinity received a 'daily' and also 'nightly' ration of shells and bombs. The Battery remained in the vicinity until 20 November 1917, and during that period in the one gun pit four different guns were put out of action by direct hits.
