Diary Entry - 28th January, 1916

Today was spent in much the same way as Wednesday except that in the morning I went out on exercise with Siggers and we went round by Hinges. Sergeant Samphier was thrown off his horse in front of the ride, which rather tickled me. At night we go to the R A band in the theatre. It is very good.


  1. This would be Sgt (Corporal in Aug 1914) Frederick Samphier [38019].

  2. Thank you, dne1. There are quite a few names coming up in the next two or three weeks that I hope you may be able to help with. I'd love to see those photographs you mentioned, by the way - the ones that were taken by Hoyland - and maybe include some on this blog, if you would agree.
