Thursday 28th Oct

Had a quiet day. Captn Crisp informed me I was chosen by Officers Commanding 3rd Brigade F.A. to take charge of Brigade Canteen it was decided to form. This would mean my being attached to Headquarters.

Last night one of the old limbers which had been broken up by shells was erected up in one of our Gun Pits as a Dummy to draw fire.
