1917 Monday 20 August

A poor old Frenchy & his little granddaughter fell foul of a Mills Bomb this morning just alongside ward. They were mowing the crop when the old man struck a live bomb which had evidently been thrown into the crop by a patient. Result it exploded & wounded both the old man in a dozen places & little girl on leg. Both treated at hospital.
Busy with full ward. one poor youngster of 19 with leg blown off Jocks mother over to see him a typical poor old Scotch lady.
