Harry Gissing's 1914-18 war diaries: October 10, 1917

October 10, 1917

Had one train to load during the night but I only had 20 stretchers and 162 walkers. The stunt apparently checked by the weather as more ambulance trains have arrived but we have no cases to load up. Cavalry have moved up, some Indian medical services being attached to deal with their own men. Weather bitterly cold, more rain in evidence. The hopovers we have been concerned in have yielded 9,000 prisoners, and 50,900 huns are calculated to have been put out of action, also positions on ridge have been gained, a very successful effort.
