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

April 7, 1917

Discovered to-day that yesterday was Good Friday. I had totally forgotten Easter but will try to go to Church to-morrow if I can locate a service. Have been put in charge of the baths where all patients are washed as part of their treatment for scabies. Had a very busy day as we were late in getting a start on, but to-morrow will be better. Weather on the mend. Had a congratulatory message from the Army Commander read out to us for our divisions’ fine work in the advance. The divisions mentioned were the 7th, and the 4th and 5th Australian Divisions, certainly they did do good work, and at the end of a gruelling time in the line too.
