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

February 15, 1918

Needing exercise and wishing to examine some graveyards I decided to walk to B. Section who are at Kandahar Farm about 3 miles. Walked across the fields in parts and saw that we had completed a lot of ploughing. This work is being done in this area by soldiers. All the horses which can be spared are used and central dumps for manure have been made. Tractors are also used and large areas are being ploughed which would otherwise be wasted owing to there being no civilians about.

Had dinner at Kandahar and then proceeded on to Neuve Englise (much knocked about) to the office of the C.R.U. They looked through all their papers for Dave Drummond’s grave but could give me no information. I then rang up through sigs. the D.A.D.G.R & E. but they also could give me no information. Set off for home then, getting a lift by a motor lorry. Weather very cold.
