Witley, May 22, 1917

Tuesday     I slept me [sic] last night under trees, went to bed about 12 A.M. after getting our lines  The batteries that we relieved were favoured with an electric storm on Sun night I hope we have good weather, we expect to go back tonight, it looks like rain at present 3 P.M.

He amplified the report in a note at the end of the diary:
