Guns like thunder

William Hallam, originally from Lockinge, but now living in Swindon, could hear the roar of guns from army training camps miles away on Salisbury Plain.

29th October 1916

Very heavy firing all day from Salisbury Plain. It must have been big guns from the reports – like thunder.
