Extract from the war diary of Lt Charles Brockbank, 1st Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment
Monday. We had a billet inspection this morning by the C.O & then drew our smoke helmets. This afternoon we went for a two hour routemarche & had rather a nice time. When we got back Beaumont said we were probably to have another M.G.O. so I have sent in my application & hope to be accepted.
