War Diary Entry: 23rd May 1916
Borrowed a car from the Divn, and started off at 9am with Handress Lloyd and Cookson (who has just returned from being attached to the divn staff) for Amiens. We called in at Naouns on the way to see if Headlam would come with us, but he was too busy.
In Amiens we inspected the result of the bombs dropped there 3 nights ago, there were only about 3, no damage done except 1 woman killed and some broken glass. We then went and looked over the camouflage; there was very little to see there this time as most of their imitation trees, guns, etc had recently been sent up to the front. While we were there in walked Bobbie Black ( the doctor at Kassala)and also Gordon, both from the Sudan.Lunched at the Café Godbert. Bought some cherries and potatoes( strawberries all sold out). Motored back in time for the Divn conference at Acheux at 4pm. Afterwards I rode round through Acheux Wood to see the SWB.
