Read today's entry from Harry Gissing's 1914-18 war diaries

March 8, 1918

​The last four days just steady going, nothing of importance happening.The weather has been fine and the cold snap has disappeared. The inspection by the A.D.M.S. quite satisfactory notwithstanding that it came without warning. The O.C. afterwards said when talking to me “They tell me that you have been in every job under the sun” referring to the different jobs I have carried out in the ambulance. Some one must have told him of it as he has not been long with us. Matters fairly lively on the front as Fritz raided us and we raided him. The bombardments were fairly sudden and intense. Mail been coming in well of late which points to an increased shipping service to Australia.
