War Diaries – 21st Bn. CEF

21st Bn, CEF-Thursday, September 12, 1918

Until September 12 the battalion was held in Divisional Reserve, Enemy bombing planes were very active near our rear area in the nights of the 8th/9th, and 9th/10th September. No bombs were dropped in our immediate vicinity. In clearing out the trench system occupied by the Battalion many articles of German equipment were found. This salvage was collected and forwarded to Officer I/C 2nd Canadian Division. Twenty four other ranks reported to the battalion as reinforcements and were posted to Companies and Sections.
