22 December 1917; Saturday

Up about 7.30. Went up to the next village walking wounded post with Sergeant Powell and MacDermot at about 9.30. Found a little dugout for the sergeant and men and improved it and put in a fire. Spent most of the day on the dugout. Saw the train1 away at night.

Looking after walking wounded and sick and putting them onto the light rail.

  1. “The train”: perhaps a train evacuating wounded to a base hospital? It seems to have been a regular service.
