31st Battery, 9th Brigade
April 13th - Enemy has withdrawn from VIMY. By 11 o’clock this morning our Infantry were holding it, and by afternoon our men were seen in the vicinity of VIMY STATION. At present everyone is engaged in the pleasant past time of “FIND THE HUN”. Reports have been coming in all day that he has been seen in large numbers in various places, but usually ten minutes later another report comes in stating that our patrols are at these points. There is however, no doubt but that the enemy is now well back towards AVION. Our line to-night would appear to be roughly LE CHAUDIERE – VIMY RAILWAY STATION and thence southerly along the railway.
