Diary Entry - 2nd July, 1918

Major and self go out after breakfast and reconnoitre the Purple Line and OP, covering same and have about a five mile walk. We went past Duesnoy Farm, a very favourite spot of the Hun's - in fact all that crest is very badly scored with holes and there is nothing there. We also found a lot of red and black currants in the garden of another old farm which also seemed to have received a lot of attention. They were quite good eating. We found the spot we were looking for - Sausage Rise - and found that it commanded a good field of view. Roberts (DTMO) and Gorry came to tea and seemed full of life, the former making a great noise.
