Personal Diary: 19th May 1916
In the morning the RIF turned out all available officers and NCOs and carried out a scheme with the Royal Flying Corps, sending & receiving messages with an aeroplane and signalling by flares. Not a great success. The Borders repeated the exercise in the afternoon.
De Lisle, Fuller and Abbot all turned up about tea time. I exercised a new horse, that has just been issued me, after tea. It seems a useful sort of animal.
