8 October 1914

Extract from the diary of Pte B H Gregg, 12th (Service) Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment

[Pte Gregg joined up in August 1914 in Chester and was posted to the newly formed 12th Bn and sent to Lewes for training. He survived the war and died aged 102 in Canada]

Thurs. An hour of night work. “A” company surprise and surround “D” company on the hills. Much more interesting. Our O. C. Company (Capt. Cleg-Hill) says if we want to get out to France as soon as possible we must hasten to become efficient.
