We entered the crater immediately after it was blown, placed another charge of 200 pounds of ammonal, and blew it.
They were to carry 6-feet tubes full of ammonal for blowing gaps in the wire.
The first party found some thick wire, placed their ammonal tubes and successfully blew several gaps.
A gap was blown in the enemy wire by the explosion of an ammonal tube.
For what purpose is ammonal used—is it a drug or an explosive?'
Nine hundred and fifty thousand pounds of ammonal were used.
Several dug-outs were bombed, and in some cases set on fire, one being blown up by the Royal Engineers with an ammonal tube.
The ammonal was discharged successfully, but the results were disappointing.
The Camp Commandant had written what looked like an 'o' in place of an 'a.' Ammonol is a drug; ammonal is an explosive.
