27th (August 1918)

Today not quite so tough, the weather a little better, but there is sad news from the guns – the fine old Sergeant (Bill White) with all his medals – the best sport and coolest hand – has been killed.  I am glad to say the dead are beginning to be buried.

  1. Hardly a tough day at all !
    Great mental survival skills on display here. Some things hurt enough to warrant a mention, but keep looking on the bright side. Keep a sense of perspective.
