Diary Entry - 14th April, 1917

Walford: Again, movement orders being expected, we stayed at the guns, although we were well out of range. In the afternoon our patrols are reported to be in La Coulotte and Avion. I lunched with Bee, returning soon afterwards to allow Bailly to go to Brigade.

Bee: A fine day but very windy. Hung about here expecting to get orders to move. Walford came to lunch. Walrond went to the wagon line, Thershaw and Shapland went up to Vimy ridge. He had a 6-in gun firing back here. Rumour says we have patrols in Livin. We are about 11,000 yards behind our infantry. The Hun started blowing up Lens today, some of our patrols are level with Lens on the right. It is going to be an awful job getting guns over Vimy Ridge. But there are some guns on the other side already.
