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

Wednesday.  We had a taube over here today but it did not have any time to do any damage as our guns opened fire on it & forced it to go off. It dropped three bombs which did no damage except break some windows. I was O.O. so could not go out tonight. We played the Convalescents & got beaten 3-0 probably due to them having nine professionals playing, & we have none.
