July 29, 1918 – Full diary entry:
“Went down the hill to Kruth. Met Art Herbert. I sure was glad to see him.
Explored No-Man’s Land tonight. Saw lots of interesting things. Saw the Rhine River.”
More detail on Robert’s adventures is coming up shortly, as he wrote a letter to his father today as well. Sadly, the “interesting things” he saw in No-Man’s Land will remain a mystery.
On the map below, the left-most marker is Kruth. Then moving left to right is Camp Boussat, the town of Remspach which was in between the Allied and German lines, and then the Rhine on the far right side of the map.
Where was Robert today? See the timeline.
