Am fed up with M.G. Fort so take trip up to front line for observation & sketching. Pass thro’ La Folie Wood down Staubwasser Weg to concrete dugout wherein lie much S.A.A. and large Trench M. ammunition. I sketch all villages in view, Avion, Mericourt, Acherville & Douai Cathedral. All small churches are destroyed. Many fires in villages
Enemy working mines. Trains moving in his rear. Balloons ascending in Mericourt.
Heavy shelling all round.
I visit H.Q. at Vimy. Met Capt. Wallis on way home. He remonstrates with me for going out alone.
*Weg is a German word which translated to English means road, way, path, street….
** S.A.A. means Small Arms Ammunition
