August 1917
1st We are in the Morbecque district & are billeted in a large farm. The other sections are billeted on farms around the district, about ¾ Kms apart.
A heavy bombardment has been going on all day to the north & North East but quietened down towards evening.
2nd Rain started to fall during the night & continued all day, & at times, very heavy. There has been no parade yet & all we have been doing is to straighten up our billet.
3rd It is raining again to-day but not so hard. We had our first parade this morning & Lt. Oliver is still acting O.C. After a little squad drill we returned home & had the rest of the day off.
