28 August 1917; Tuesday

Up at 7.30. Wet morning. Parade as usual and did some squad drill and then cleaned up our kit. Billy Truman not well and stayed in kip. Had long walk at night with Holman, Harvey and Dory. Went along the northern road past the shrine and called back by the monument in the wood. Glorious night. Strong breeze. Ended up with supper – omelettes and salad – at the Café de la Gare.
