    I agree that the first [?] is just the word “Big”. Looks like he changed his mind or the pen slipped. Not sure about the second [???]. Looks like “our” or “own” but neither one makes sense.

    could it be “light” firing?
    could it be “over” ? Doesn’t make sense to me.

      Actually “over” does make sense. The firing is over, as in it stopped. I like that better than either of my suggestions, and the word easily could be “over” from looking at it again. Not sure about that first one. I see what you mean about “Light”, maybe.

  3. I’m still thinking “big” based on the first letter — more like a “b” than anything else. The “over” makes sense.
