15 August 1916; Tuesday

Up at 6 o’clock. Drew rations. Orderly man with Leaky today. Wrote letters in the morning. Went with him to some Belgian sports in the afternoon. Saw some mules jumping. At night went up with Stanton and Leaky and saw some good horse jumping. Ridden by officers and Belgian and Canadian N C C1. One officer went over the ropes but didn’t hurt himself. Saw some tumblers going on above and watched shells bursting in the distance as usual. Carried on. Had dinner and slept well through it.

  1. “N C C”: Non-Combatant Corps
