Up at 7.30. On duty in the hospital as usual. A section marched off up the line. A lot of fuss about the D M S1 coming and he didn’t come round. C O in a bad temper in the morning and sent most men off to duty. Wrote letter to Leishman in the Y M at night. I talked to a corporal of the Wilts2 just out, for a few minutes. At the service.
