Extract from the diary of Lt Charles Brockbank, 1st Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment

Saturday. There is very little doing today except they dropped one or two shells pretty close to us whilst shelling the village, no damage done, but it livens things up a bit. We are due up in the firing line again tonight. Have been up till about 4.0 A.M. suprintending [sic] the strengthening of our parapets & trying to make the trench part more habitable. It is very weird working out in front of the trench, even at night, as you always have a feeling that someone can see you & is going to pot you. I suppose it will wear off.
