Monday Don’t know what to do to pass away the time it appears to me that this is a peace time outfit
For all that Percy is finding it hard to pass the time, plenty of activity is recorded in the War Diary of the Fifth Divisional Artillery. Musketry practice on the firing ranges at Mytchett near Aldershot begins today. “Parties of 500 all ranks entrain at Milford at 7:50 am daily and return leaving Mytchett at 5:30 pm.” All signallers have been tested recently, and today the results are disseminated to all units. In general, the general standard is high, says the War Diary, but “more continuous training in batteries is essential.”(1)
And a Divisional Artillery Tactical Scheme is being planned for Hankley and Frensham Commons.
