Diary Entry - 8th August, 1917

Relieved at ten by Cruikshank, having had a pitched battle with the mosquitoes at the Babe OP in the evening. One could barely see out of the loophole for them, so I gassed them by turning on a smoke barrage produced from a smouldering damp sand bag. In the evening I went over to the AA section and saw Young in charge. He informed me that John was still at Verquin. There were two very heavy thunderstorms after six p.m. and Sherman arrived in the midst of very heavy rain at seven p.m., having come up to see a ugnpit and give his opinion on reconstruction - his job in peacetime in Canada.
