War Diary Entry: 31st May 1916
Started off with Fisher round the trenches at 545am.we went round the left sub-sector (SWB trenches), Micklejohn returned off leave a day early. Welch went round the trenches then came into lunch on the way back to discuss matters. They have been shelling Acheux rly station all yesterday and Monday, but not today. The gun is firing at 15000 yds, extreme range, and they have the huge chimney just this side of it to aim at. I suggested they should pull the chimney down and put up a camouflage one 400 yds to the right or left. Ellis went off on leave till the 6th.
