Diary Entry - 3rd March, 1916

I rise at three to meet the centre section. I asked to be called at four but have no watch. It is very dark and have wretched walk up to the guns, stumbling into shell holes and over wires, and find the French getting everything ready to move. Having no idea of the time, I rush back to the crossroads and meet the guns as they are coming down the road and take them straight up to the position. After an hour's chaos, the ammunition is unloaded and everything gets away and we run the guns in, as soon as the French get away, which is just before daylight.
