Diary Entry - 19th August, 1916

Having returned from Waterlot, I forgot to mention that the last of the three runners sent out never reached his destination. He left me about midnight, when things were moderately quiet, and has never been heard of since, but he was probably wounded and taken to the dressing station. The battery was reached at seven and it was inclined to rain. I had breakfast when I got back and slept till two, as had had no sleep all night. There was no room in the infantry dugout to sit down and people kept walking over me all night.
