48 C.C.S. Ypres – France 30.12.1917
Terrific barrage opened out at 6.45 a.m. lasted for an hour. I thought maybe it would be a repetition of the 30th Nov. Very soon after the wounded started to come in. And a very busy day & night followed. The Huns had attacked again – Came over in the snow swathed in white. The Naval Division caught it. Also during the morning the shelling was heavy & rather close. The Labour Batt had a bad time through it. Such a number of gas Patients coming in too.
I am in the Acute Medical now & battling with Pneumonia chiefly – the M.O. is C. Chandler a Chest Specialist from London. By night we had several in with Chest wounds also.
