We see two big fires in Lens.
AT 10:30 am I go to Carency, Souchez, La Targette in side car. Roads frightfully bad. Much traffic. Large holes. Much mud.
Gen. MacDonnel sees me & in evening makes fun out of spotting me without me seeing him.
L/c Hodge & Pte. Crawford are recommended for medals. I see 25 dead horses in a heap & many men on roadside. Also some being shot.
*It is estimated that 8 million horses died on all sides during World War I.
