Extract from the war diary of Lt Charles Brockbank, Machine Gun Corps
Sunday. We bombarded the Ger GIVENCHY trenches today for four hours with jolly good results. Rained all afternoon until 4.30 & when it cleared up I went into BETHUNE to see if I could get an engraving tool but faild [sic] miserably. Marsden, Barnet & Brown came into dinner & to play poker.
