Extract from the war diary of Lt Charles Brockbank, Machine Gun Corps

Wednesday.  Field operations once more but we really did very little work, it was more a case of lectures by the C.O. & the officers, than practical work. Went down to the aerodrome again and incidentally met Lieut. Ball M.C. who has seven hostile machines & two balloons to his credit. Most unassuming little chap. Awfully hot & close.
