Diary Entry - 31st May, 1917

Walford: I am orderly officer: reveille at six a.m., inspection parade at eight thirty, taken by the Major. Horses for the riding school parade at eight forty-five. As the horses were watering at midday, John turned up in a Ford box car. He seemed fit and looked well enough. We did not have much entertrainment for him. However, he stayed till tea and then went off to the line, as the section was moving up from a near position. As neuralgia worried me during the afternoon, I went to bed without dinner. A cold in the chest was giving me beans, as every time I coughed the neuralgia gave me fits,. However, the medical orderly gives me some good pills.
