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

May 17, 1918​​

A fairly quiet day. Our abdominal case getting on well. He has a wonderful heart and is making a great fight for it. Learnt to-day that a case we had who died suddenly a couple of days ago had meningitis. He was brought to us at 8 p.m., collapsed at 10 p.m. and was dead at 12p.m., after we had given him oxygen and artificial respiration for sometime. It is indeed a deadly disease. The P.M. was done at the C.C.S. Played hockey at night and won. Had a swim after, my first for the season.
