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

Friday.  I was Orderly Officer today & as I did not wake till 10.30 it was a bit of a scramble to get through. We got called out again to St Martin Camp at 9.0 p.m. so off we went. It was decided I need not stay the night as Walmsley was admitted to Hospital today. It turned foggy at about 9.0 p.m. so the Canadians did not turn up & I had to sleep on the floor of the Q.M’s tent and it was decidedly damp. The Channel Boats was [sic] 11½ hours late owing to the fog
