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

Sunday.   Orderly Officer today. Three officers buried today and a horrible accident occurred. One of the coffins slipped out of the rope whilst being lowered into the grave & fell to the bottom, it nearly made me sick & it upset the relatives very much but the other two went off all right. Very tired tonight, but it is not to be wondered at.
