Diary Entry - 10th July, 1916

Monday, as there was another small dinner, Siggers went to Béthune to collect the necessities while I remained at guns and Hoyland was at OP. Kellagher was in to dinner and it was really a farewell to him. That same afternoon we got our new acting captain, Lieutenant Bailey, a Cambridge don of some standing. An officer of the Royal Naval division also lobbed, with about 12 men, attached to us for a fortnight. The latter is only a small man, but the amount of kit he brought is appalling.
