War Diary Entry: 22nd June 1916 (Missing)

This day's diary entry is missing. CHTL occasionally notes a day but writes little or nothing, Sundays usually. But the 22nd was a 'swap' of note keeping methods from a small pocket diary to loose pages. These loose pages cover the next 14 or so eventful days of the bomardment, attack and aftermath. During this time CHTL's HQ was a shell-proof bunker in amore forward position, so one could assume that he was 'travelling light', or had left his diary safe behind the lines.
