Sketching up to 3 PM.
Leave camp for the trenches by myself. Take route thro’ Kriusstraat & Ypres arr. at Bn H.Q. at 6:30. Lt. MacDougal (intelligence officer) & I view maps. At 9 PM McD. & I go along the front firing line. As we go over Menin Road Pte. Peart is shot in eye (right) by bullet. The ground all round is pitted with shell holes. We visit the crater which was made by one of our mines when Enemy occupied the ground. All trenches in very bad shape. Only 2 dug outs stench horrible. Many dead Germans & ours near crater, our troops occupy shell holes for 48 hours. I return to H.Q. at 2:30 am.
