21st July 1917

A hard morning spent on physical and bayonet work including a practice advance in extended order through the dense greenery of Lucheux Forest nearby was, perhaps, the best medicine for dispelling sombre thoughts.  With the afternoon free from all duties the platoon bedded down at an unconscionable early hour.

Physical, bayonets extended order in forest, etc.
Afternoon off - kip.
Lt Lowndes out from England.
