Diary Entry - 8th July, 1916

Hoyland went very early to Béthune to buy articles for the dinner in the evening. It was a dinner for BCs to meet the General, and no pains were spared for it to be a good one, as you can judge given that 475 francs were spent over it. The General was unable to attend but he sent his staff Major, Carrington, a real good sort, along. The dinner seemed to be going successfully when I had to depart as I did not feel too bright with neuralgia. A great deal of the day was spent in preparing the Mess for the feast. It was three thirty when the party broke – Bee was amongst them and I hear he was yawning his head off. I forgot to add Crozier got his chit to go to England and Kellagher was made OC 58th battery.
