4 December 1917; Tuesday

Up about 7 o’clock. On double1. Spent morning practising stretcher business. In afternoon played football. First game I have played since I left school. Sprained my ankle at the start of the match but kept on playing. Had short walk at night but had to turn it in2.

  1. Double march, or run. See all diary entries tagged “double“. 

  2. “Had to turn it in”: ALL had to abandon his walk as a result of the ankle injury he sustained while playing football.
