January 1917
28th I was put into Convalecent to-day which is a great relief after being in bed. This afternoon I went for a walk into Albert which is only about a mile away. I got a few interesting "snaps" Albert is a fairly large town & although there are very few french inhabitants left the place is full of troops & very busy with motor transport.
The ruined cathederal is the most interesting feature of the town. Although once a fine building it is now a mass of ruins & presents a very wierd spectacle. Many of the buildings there are in ruins & there is hardly a window in the whole town that is not broken. Although the Germans still bombard it, the shells are few & far between.
