# We fired about 30 rounds each. Our gun was only two points above condeming. This report was ­pleasing, we had often been told that our shooting was erractic on the Cambrai Front. Seemed strange after such good reports while on the Lens Front. – January

# We fired about 30 rounds each. Our gun was only two points above condeming.
