Personal Diary Entry: 18th May 1916

The Brigade was relieved by the 88th Bde in the trenches during the afternoon and evening. The KOSB went into the huts in Mailly Wood, SWB in Acheux Wood, Borders and RIF at Laurencourt with Bde Hd qrs. Relief completed without incident. Perfect summer weather again the last two days. Roger Brand and Guy Sawyer turned up in a car about 3.30pm just when all our kit had been packed up, and Cayley had arrived to take over, Jack Brand left at 4am for England to get married.
