Diary Entry - 9th March, 1917

Walford: Y Day. Slept at the guns overnight and soon after ten Bromley came up and went straight to the OP. At midday Walrond turned up, having arrived at the WL the previous night. Again it snowed at intervals, making the light bad. I remained at the guns for the night, the remainder retiring to rear position.

Bee: Walrond went up to the guns this morning and about ten p.m. the same night messages began to roll in for ammunition, sandbags and whatnots. The horses are having a bad time as we are so far from the guns – about nine miles. But there is no water any closer. A thaw has set in and the roads are beginning to show it.
