10 yds broad…


“Early yesterday afternoon a crack formed along the snow filled trench, 2ft. broad, whose formation first started on Aug. 27th… This new crack was 8 ins. wide at 6.0 pm: at 9.0 it suddenly broadened another 2 ft … a big change however took place in the afternoon. Between half past two and half past three the innocent crack became a lead 10 yds. broad.”

— James Wordie
