31 October 1916

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

Tuesday.   The Sussex came in this morning & relieved the Herts. They seem to be a very queer crew & I dont think a tremendous lot of them, but of course they are another Brigade. It is raining hard again, so the trench is getting very bad. Knowles found a very good helmet in the dugout. Bosch put down a barrage on our line at 11.15 and followed it with a liquid fire attack. Hell with the lid off.
