30 May 1918; Thursday

Up pretty early and on duty at 7 o’clock. The place shelled and we moved up the bank. A battery of field guns came behind us and about noon we moved. Just as we were leaving about 6 shells fell into the camp and killed two slightly wounded men. A beautiful (though warm) walk through the woods and country. Arrived at Nantueil [sic]1 about 5 o’clock. Opened up dressing station straight away. Worked until about 1 o’clock.
