Diary Entry - 21st April, 1916

At Lorette, my signallers kept me waiting half an hour, for which I cursed them heartily, but it was not much good as it was daylight before we got to Noulette. Consequently, we had to walk up in daylight. The trenches were very wet. They had been spoiled by the 23rd, as were made deeper, but the fools never made allowances for a drain, which the French had at the side before, so I was wet before I got to Lorette. The trenches at Lorette were very bad, and we had to walk up them in full view but, as no bullets or shells chased us, presume they did not see us. It started raining again at four and set in properly.
