Saturday, 16th June (1917)

Went to Oldham again last night and ran around the central portion on a tram.  To give an idea of the industry here – whilst we were grazing horses our corporal amused himself counting the factory chimneys; he reached 250 before he got tangled up; you can’t see more than a couple of miles for smoke.
