1 July 1917; Sunday

Up at 7 o’clock. Kept fairly busy all day. Went to service at night. Very good service and pretty good sermon though rather too long. Bob Walker with me. Ernie1 not turned up yet. Received letter from home.


  1. Ernie: see 5 July. There is nothing to indicate whether Ernie’s battery was in the Ypres Salient in time to take part in the Messines Ridge bombardment. See also: Family page, and all diary entries tagged “Ernie”
