“During the next two days everybody was very busy preparing for the ‘push’ which is supposed to come off on Saturday. Telephone wires were laid across the river to Ripalova, and a wireless was put up in the village. Needless to say this caused a great sensation amongst the villagers. I busied myself getting reserve supplies of dressings cut up ready for use. Col. Henderson left for Archangel on the 7th – a good riddance too!”
