War Diary Entry: July 16th 1916
Bishop of Khartoum took the Brigade parade service. Lunched with De Lisle. After lunch motored with Nickalls & Handress Lloyd over to Fricourt to look at the German trenches. I don’t think we have very much to learn from them. The whole place was like a ploughed field with shell craters. The village was knocked flat.There were a very large number of our 8” shells, unexploded, lying about.
