The location of occasional concerts in early 1917.

27 February 1917; Tuesday

Up at usual time. Papers mention the capture of Serre & village beyond1.

Rumoured capture of Kut-el-Amam2.

Walked to Lealvillers but found no concert there. Bought some things and walked to the little cocoa house and had some biscuits and cocoa. Went to bed fairly early and slept well. Wrote long letter home. Had tent crowded out at night.

  2. Possibly a reference to the second battle of Kut. See also 20 February

13 February 1917; Tuesday

Up at 7 o’clock. Kept fairly busy all day. Had walk in the afternoon to Lealvillers1 with Harvey and Holman. Harvey just going out of hospital. Went to bed early.
