9 May 1918; Thursday

Up about 7 o’clock. Not much to do. Got new tunic at night. Fine day. Received letter from home saying that my final Intimation of Wound1 had got there. Also letter from Gertie telling me about her lessons.


  1. We know from ALL’s papers (specifically a document entitled “UNIT REGISTER CARD A.G.Z.500 FRANCE”) that he had qualified for “Wound Stripes: One”, no doubt in virtue of the wound sustained on 14 April; one assumes from this entry that wounds, even minor ones, were formally notified to next of kin.
