Diary Entry - 30th and 31st January, 1916

Hoyland departs on leave on the Saturday night and life goes on as usual on these two days, except that Siggers is rather off-colour with dysentery. A new officer from the Terriers is attached to us on the 30th. His name is Cottew– a full lieutenant.


  1. This seems likely to be Lt Eric Guy Campbell Cottew of the 2nd/1st (?) Warwickshire RHA Territorials - then at home.

  2. So is that what the Terriers are - the Territorials? At last a mystery solved.
