16 December 1915

Extract from the official war diary of 2nd Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment

8am Battalion paraded for digging trenches.  Site taken up, old TURKISH TRENCHES made by TURKS for the defence of SALONICA during their last war with GREECE, on lower slopes of Hills from AIVATLI running N.W. to BALJA.

1pm Tents arrived and were pitched by Signallers in hills N. W. of AIVATLI, between that place and BALJA.  Very heavy rain all ranks drenched to the skin.
