28 May 1917; Monday

Up at 6.30. Kept busy all day. Stayed on at night. Had walk round the town in the morning. The Germans had put a big gun again and shelled heavily round about. I lay awake a good while listening.

Heard that a lot of artillery and suchlike had been killed the night before and that the dressing station had 70 wounded there. Wrote letter to Mr Eaves about Mr Mullens1. Did a bit French at night and read a bit.

  1. Mr Mullens: A minister from the South Durham Street United Methodist Free Church in Sunderland whose death is recorded on 20 and 24 May
