Diary Entry - 10th September, 1917

At ten a.m. Sherman met Goschen at the WL, as it was his day of inspection. Everything went well and there were no grouses, except that A and B subs horses were not very clean. In the afternoon Sherman registered for the TM straafe on Twenty Two Alley and also for raid. Before dinner, the Mayor/Major [?] of Admiral brought us over a photograph of the position, which showed up badly with tracks and blast marks but think it must have been taken very low. The 8' howitzer subaltern Parker stayed for dinner. We held rather an interesting discussion that night on traces of animals found in different countries but which are now extinct - the Dodo, pterodactyl, et cetera.
