Diary Entry - 11th May, 1917

Walford: Friday. Sandford went to the guns again, to let Hoyland come back to his wagon lines. One gun was put out during the night - a 5.9' hitting the trail about the spade, cutting the latter to piece,s so it meant a new gun. I rode up to the brigade to see about some guns, also intending to call in at the graveyard on the way and try to get a snap, but there were too many men about. The doctor had again attacked the ears that morning. On our arrival back at the lines, we found the colonel there, Bellew had gone up to take Evans's place as he had been wounded by shrapnel in the back. The Colonel stayed for tea, then walked back to the Brigade with Connover.
