War Diaries – 38th Bn. CEF

38th Bn. CEF- Friday, August 9, 1918

Before Zero Hour at 12:10am, large bodies of Cavalry assisted by Whippet Tanks proceeded us and practically cleared our area of advance until we arrived in the vicinity of Cayuga Woods where long range machine gun fire was encountered from the right flank, and was taken on with Lewis Guns and rifles. As no serious opposition had been encountered at our first objective the leading Companies proceeded to our final objective being about 1000 yards West of the Village of Caix. The two Support Companies and Battalion Headquarters remained in the vicinity of Cayuga Wood. There was still some hostile fire from machine guns on our right flank, but this was not of a serious nature.
