31 August 1918; Saturday

Up at 7 o’clock and on parade at 8 o’clock. Not much to do. Sick parade as usual. Received letter from home and pc1 from Ernie to say he is getting on well.

Heard that we have captured Baileul & Dranoutre2.


  1. “pc”: Presumably post card. 

  2. Dranoutre: NE. of Bailleul, near Kemmel and Locre – no doubt overrun in the March offensive (see 21 March); Michelin square I3.
