Extract from the diary of Lt Charles Brockbank, 1st Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment
Thursday. I am feeling very cheap, bad head & arm etc as a result of the inoculation so am doing very little. Football has made its appearance & we had a match played on our farm meadow, Norfolks v Dorsets, the former won 1-0. It is very nice to see someone playing again & I hope we take the tip. We went in to BAILLEUL this evening for exercise but it is very slow, hardly anyone there, nor many shops open. It seems very quiet.
