This is an extract from Arthur Linfoot’s own transcription of his diary, written in 1976.

Up at seven. On fatigue in the morning. Cleaning waggons in the afternoon. At hospital across the village which is to be run by “C” (my) section. Duggins also orderly. Very busy. Called in the village and bought bread. No bread issue today. Orders to be orderly man tomorrow.
