1917 Sunday 8 April

Easter Sunday!! Last Easter Day we landed at Suez. What a life-time has been crowded into the last 12 months? New experiences- fresh outlooks. Will we see the expiration of another 12 months before this unfortunate business is ended.
Fatique duty during day.
McBurney & self go for walk after tea to ruins of Martinpuich. Such a scene of desolation? Everything splintered to matchwood. Souvenirs – The old Tank & knockout blow on the forehead. Secure face of its brass clock. Long dead Fritzs & Tommies lying about. 'Twas in Sept. last this area was taken.
A beautiful sunny bright day Symbolical of the day.
