13 November 1916

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

Sinai Peninsula

“Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie when we ascribe ourselves to Heaven.”      

       We have a grand concert, splendid turns. A B.W.I. sergeant gives a turn which is a great success.

          Sergt Foster is a very fine fellow, he is absolutely black with every stamp of an American negro, but  when you live with him, have meals together and chat with him, he is quite a[n] English gentleman for his manners are splendid, he is attached to us for food and discipline while attending a Bombing course at Brigade.
