At 2 PM I go with Lieut. Willis (A.D.C. to General McDonnell) & an orderly, named Wall, to deliver secret dispatches to Colonel Griesbach of 49th (O.C. Battalions in firing line). When entering China Wall we walk over dead bodies for one mile after passing Halfway House the shelling is awfully intense, all calibre. Parapet blown in, burying & killing many. Am alone, orderly is killed. Push on to Yeomanry Post, rest halfway. Meet Willis. We go together reach Yeo. P. deliver dispatches.
