August 31, 1918
We ceased to be the M.D.S. at 10 a.m. the 8th having moved forward and opened up near Cappy, the A.D.S. has also moved to the left, our division taking over from the 2nd Division, thus bringing us to the Somme again. During the day I forwarded by motor lorry all my drugs and dressings to the new M.D.S., it was a full load. Loaded our waggon during the day ready to move off again. Matters still going well with the advance and a party of over 700 prisoners passed about 5.30. Latest reports are 120,000 prisoners and 2,000 guns. Towards dusk hundreds of our aeroplanes going home fly low over our heads and many do hair-raising feats, such as looping and flying corkscrew fashion, diving etc. Hun bombing planes over last night but no bombs close.
