[Friday 9 June 1916[

Our 2nd in Command just got a D.S.O., so the Regiment is pleased with itself-
Entrenching in this drift sand is heart breaking work, each day the Trench fills up with the wind-
Just heard of KITCHENERS death, is it true? Or like Enver Pasha??
Moved out to Reconnoitre in force C. 3.45
Camped at 10 AM Sahia Hear Kitcheners death is true & we are wearing Black Bands-
Left again
