Extract from war diary of 10th Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment
The Shelling Continued throughout the day – though except at intervals it was not so heavy as the previous 24 hours. Weather conditions still remained bad and it rained almost the whole day. Companies were organized as far as possible and collected together in shell holes and dry bits of trench[e]s. G.C. Companies visited the front line. All Officers received their meals at Bn HQ and slept in turns on the two bunks Bn HQ dugout.
