Here you get another photography from the church in Dadize(e)le. My grandfather took it in Feb. or in March 1918. For the 7th Division he observed from the church tower, thus experiencing several heavy shellings. Once an exploding grenade blew him across the vault roof of the nave when he hurried down the church tower. Miraculously he did not receive any shell splinters. One of the grenades that were fired during this occasion missed the church and fell into a house where my grandfather's Hussars troop was lodged. Fortunately this grenade did not explode - so it passed through the entire building, at least beating through the basement floor into a hidden cellar room which was filled with thousands of bottles of wine. - Heaven on earth: This particular grenade was baptized "The Charitable Grenade".

The most heavy shelling of the church and the castle took place on Jan. 9th and 10th. On the 9th, the Allies sent 60 grenades on them (my grandfather mentioned 19-cm-caliber which confused my because 19 cm does not seem to be a British artillery caliber, right?).

On the 10th, the British blew 130 grenades onto church and castle. The shelling started at 12:00 'o clock (German time, this 11:00 'o clock Greenwich). The shooting followed the so-called "Batterieleger-Muster" (battery layer pattern): salvos of 4 grenades concurrently.

- Here you can see how the church looked afterwards. (The above said "Volltreffer" at the main gate had been fired weeks before, killing a young infantry soldier from Hamburg).

Regards

Henry
