14 December 1916

Extract from the diary of Pte James Arthur Railton, 8th Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment

[Pte Railton was from Wallasey and was called up in October 1916 and sent to Mesopotamia]

[In Plymouth]

Usual morning’s work. Wrote home in the afternoon. Refused our dinner, not fit to eat so had some more given to us. Rather better. Football match, lost 4-1. I scored only goal, a beauty.
