War Dairy Entry: July 26th 1916

Bde remained in Amplier for the day. I was witness on a court martial after lunch.Rode into Doullens after tea. Went into Amiens with Williams Overy and Ross to dine and see the censoring of the cinematograph films taken during this battle. The Godbert was full up so we tried to get dinner at L'Univers, that was full up too but we eventually got a table. The films were quite good, but too much of the slightly wounded walking back followed by unwounded men pretending to assist, also photos of German prisoners and our dead were overdone. all the early ones were of our Divn before the attack and on July 1st. Got back to Amplier about 1230am.
