Extract from the diary of Norman Hughes, “B” Coy, 1/4th Cheshire Regiment 53rd (Welsh) Division [Norman Hughes came from Neston]
“Nothing great is easy.”
I am very sick in the night and in the morning have dysentery very bad. Drink nothing all day long and eat only a very little chocolate.
Could not eat any dinner at evening but manage to get to the concert later on
