The note itself is too long to post in the snippet so I'll post it here.
Artillery observer at ‘K’ Sector, Normandy. Requested headquarters supplement report. Panzer attack – blitz. West Artillery Observer Tracking
Lt Knows extra guns are here. Know where local dispatch station is. Determined where Jerry’s headquarters front posts. Right battery headquarters
Found headquarters infantry right here. Final note, confirming, found Jerry’s whereabouts. Go over field notes. Counter measures against Panzers not
working. Jerry’s right battery central headquarters here. Artillery observer at ‘K’ sector Normandy. Mortar, infantry attack panzers.
Hit Jerry’s Right or Reserve Battery Here. Already know electrical engineers headquarters. Troops, panzers, batteries, engineers, here. Final note
known to headquarters.
BUT they also think: “Maybe these are ‘fillers’ just to confuse the Germans or anyone else who might have got the message. We have written to
the Canadian War Museum to see if they can find somebody who understands artillery short forms.”
So it sounds like there's still plenty of room for fun.
Have a great day!
Also, I really hope I made this thread ok, mods please help if I messed up somehow. Thanks!
