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

Friday.  On the guns all today & then Corpl. Birkenhead came round again like last night. I reckon I know all about the mechanism now so shall be able to get along much better. Very nearly got transferred to the R.F.C. today as they want officers for observers. (My weight was the stumbling block, I was too heavy)
