August 30, 1918
We are now the Main Dressing Station, the 15th having passed through us and formed an A.D.S. near Estrees about 6 miles further on. Had to supply them with dressings, so collected more during the day. Went by car to see the A.D.S., very interesting country, some of it being the old battle ground of 1916, and altho grown over still showed the shell holes, etc.
Dead horses were numerous and the air was thick in their neighbor-hood, some had been buried in the shell holes of the road, others were still uncovered some having been there for months, showing how careless the huns are in this respect, they are distinctly dirty and insanitary. We captured a large gun near here 15 in. I believe, with barrel over 40 ft. but I have not yet seen it. The road has already been mended and trains, broad gauge and narrow, and telephone lines (permanent) have already reached close to the line. There is nothing wrong with our organisation.
