29 July 1917; Sunday

Up at 7 o’clock. Kept fairly busy all day. 3 patients went out. At Y M service at night. Had short walk before with Bob Walker and we were in the Outtersteene Road1 when Fritz2 sent some shells over in the direction of the station.


  1. The Outtersteene Road is a road, now the D23, running SW from Bailleul (A) to Outtersteene (B), about 5km away. Bailleul station, apparently the objective of “Fritz'” shelling, is at (C). 

  2. Fritz: a name given to German troops by the British and others in the First and Second World Wars.
