Diary Entry - 17th and 18th June, 1916

At guns during the day and went to the OP in the evening, relieving Claudie. All was quiet as usual. In the afternoon, Hoyland, after getting correct map reference from the Brigade, set out for the pipes at Chamblain Abbe and this time found them, but there were people joining them up and they would have been awkward things to rip up without being seen. We only wanted a few for the gun position as speaking tubes. In the evening we went to Lorrette and relieved the usual man at 15th. Sunday was a quiet day at Lorette and we never fired a round. It was a summer day, but a wind from the west was very sharp for anyone standing about.
