Diary Entry - 7th June, 1918

There was the usual inspection of harness which was not at all good. A subsection as usual walked away with the half holiday. A certain Driver Maxie who had returned from hospital arrived at our lines but with a chit from the 52nd Brigade but when I sent him to the 52nd Brigade they refused to have anything to do with him so after going to the adjutant about it found we would have to keep him as the statement saying he was to report to the 52nd Brigade had no signature to it. On the way back from the brigade I met Nicholson rummaging about some old huts looking for timber. Hear in the evening that Major Bromley of 41st Brigade was killed by a shell at midday while standing at the door of his Mess.
