September 11, 1918
Went by car to Mons, St. Crew and Doingt near Peronne during a hunt round to see if some of my dispensary gear could be found which had gone astray. Found large encampments near Peronne so it will be a hot shop at nights. Also saw a number of large guns going forward so the bridges must now be properly rebuilt. The front very quiet and we are getting ammunition and supplies forward.
Spent the afternoon finishing the dugout, put in a wooden floor and made it light proof which allows of a light after dark, a big consideration as ‘tis dark at 8 p.m. nowadays. All our divisions are roundabout and our spell will now be taken in this neighbourhood instead of near Amiens as at first intended, rather hard on the men but perhaps unavoidable.
