22 July 1916

Extract from the diary of Norman Hughes, “B” Coy, 1/4th Cheshire Regiment 53rd (Welsh) Division [Norman Hughes came from Neston. In Egypt]

“if you want to become more courageous, become more loving”.

I am on the Supply Guard, and have a fearful toothache, it is so f violent that I hand the Guard to by corporal and go over to the R.A.M.C. and [have] one pulled out, but they refused to draw a very big one; afterwards I have 3 more drawn: spent a fearful night, but stick it through. I have a good Cpl in Corpl Randles he does everything.
