Extract from war diary of 5th Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment

The battalion “sports” were held in the chateau grounds, commencing at 2.00pm and concluding at 8.00 pm. Rain fell during the morning, but it cleared up for the afternoon. The Divl. ground played on the ground, and the G.O.C. Division graced the proceedings with his presence. The battalion was divided into 5 groups, A,B,C,D, and H. Qrs. H. Qrs group won the Championships prize which the Commanding Officer gave to the group scoring the most points. The whole proceedings were a great success.
