Diary Entry - 1st and 2nd August, 1916

Nothing very thrilling to account. One has got more used to the shells continually sprinkled about and forgets about it very quickly. A signaller was wounded in front of the battery by Bosch shrapnel while we were at tea on Tuesday. He had come down from the signal station. It has at last been heard that the attack was not at all a success and that the number of prisoners reported were not captured. Wellman, the officer who went up yesterday morning for 24 hours duty has not returned yet and it is reported has been slightly gassed by shell and is at Corbie along with a signaller belonging to the 71s. This morning at six they shelled us heartily, but there were not casualties, thanks to the Bosche dugouts.
