3 October 1917; Wednesday

Up at about 8 o’clock. One case to carry down first thing and it was rather heavy after the rain. Not busy all day. Out at midnight with two cases. A machine gun crew of the Notts and Derbys1 blown up and one man out of 17 untouched.

  1. “Notts and Derbys”: I think this is correctly transcribed, but I haven’t found any reference to battalions of a Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment. (DL)
