Battalion War Diary of the Battle of Messines Ridge

I don't want to be skeptical, but London, and certainly Dublin, are a long way away.

I have to wonder how reliable reports of people hearing it are.
seems to indicate the reports are probably erroneous.

I've worked with smaller but more powerful blasts for runway demolition. I would think the overpressure would be lethal for a good distance, if the shock wave was still audible at that range. Since Harry neither lost his hearing (even temporary), nor reports on the blasts, it would indicate the perceived shock he felt was not out of order with standard artillery he experienced.
