Diary Entry - 15th to 17th May, 1916

All these days were spent in settling down and getting things squared up in the way of harness and the hundred and one other small things that have to be seen to. Siggers and I visited the mine baths on 16th and were very much appreciated. On 17th in the evening, I left for leave, riding into B├ęthune, starting at nine thirty pm. On the way in we passed several aerodromes, which were very busy experimenting with night flying and one machine nearly took our heads off as it rose by the side of the road. The train left at the usual time - two am - and it was very full. We had six in our carriage so there was not much sleep to be got.
