28 November 1917; Wednesday

Up shortly before 7 o’clock. Paraded at 10 o’clock with full pack and were inspected first by the C.O. and afterwards by the A D M S 1.

In the afternoon went to the football match between our team and the North Lancs2. A very exciting game. They scored in the second half and we scored in the last three minutes. Played extra time 10 minutes and played the Lancs to a standstill, but couldn’t score.

  1. A D M S: Assistant Director of Medical Services. 

  2. “North Lancs” is probably the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment; its 7th battalion was in the 19th (Western) Division.
