6 December 1916; Wednesday

Up about 7 o’clock. Drew rations from billet. Packed kit and marched off at 9.45. Arrived at Beaval1 about midday. Had some coffee and was called away to help to set up a hospital. Worked until after tea. Slept in the barn. Had potato chips at the hospital for supper2.

  1. Marched from Hem-Hardinval (A) to Beauval (B). 

  2. “Potato chips”: Probably something more akin to French fries than to crisps. See note on 30 June 1915
