6th July 1916 Thursday

“July 6th was spent in tidying up our hospital and attending to our wounded brought down during the day. In the evening some of us took a motor ambulance and went forward to view the ‘Battle Area’. We made our way through several villages which were crammed with our guns of all shapes and sizes. They were all blazing away at the Huns and the sight from the top of the last ridge was awe inspiring. We could see the shells bursting all along the German positions. Their retaliations seemed to be very feeble.”
