20 August 1915

Extract from the war diary of Joseph Norton, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment

We left Neuve-Chappelle and marched back to Merville to billets. When I say billets, I mean a barn and sleep on straw and very often it rained in and we got wet through. I undressed myself here for the first time since arriving in France, which was about five weeks times.
