On the Somme, not so bad for new years day. Attached to the 49th Siege Battery. What a place I wouldn’t have told anyone about this place. I hope we are not here long.
Arrived at this other hospital but I think it’s only for a day or two. I don’t know what to call this place. I haven’t been out yet just out of the grounds in one of the loveliest churches I have seen. Weather lovely.
Out in Nesle today. Well it’s a very nice place but I would sooner have an English village.
I saw many interesting things as to what the Germans have left but taking it on the whole they haven’t knocked it about as much as other villages.
Going to another hospital a bit further down the line.
Another lovely day. Had a walk around the town and its a very nice place. Old fritzy has left some fine work behind and he thinks a lot more of their dead soldiers than what we do.
Doctors just been round about 10 o’clock. I can get up after dinner. It’s a lovely day sun shining but a bit cold outside
Another lovely day just like summer. I hope to get up this afternoon but I don’t know yet. Up today for about two hours.
What a lovely day but still in bed. I am a lot better but I fancy it will take a long time to be the same again.
This is a kind of convalescent camp or other hospital. The doctor hasn’t been round yet but I hope to get up today. I have had 10 days in bed now and I’m feeling somewhat weak
Sun shining Nesle. After arriving in this new hospital they found us a bed and lockers. Got to sleep. Very nice doctors which I have come across but not good food only milk and a piece of bread but never mind better days in store.
Still in hospital. After seeing the M.O. (Medical Officer) he sent me along with some more fellows down to another hospital in a place called Nesle.
