Battalion Ceremonial parade in the morning. At 11 AM the Battalion proceeded to the Divisional Fete and horse show (programme attached). Although the Battalion only succeeded in winning one prize (Bomb throwing) everybody spent a very enjoyable day as the Fete was marvellously organized and everything went off without a hitch.

Training was carried out under Company arrangements for two hours during the morning. DIVISIONAL PERRIOTS performed tunes in the evening.

About 9.30 pm a BOSCHE PLANE flew over the camp & dropped seven bombs. Three of these fell on the parade ground & two in D Coy lines. Material damage caused nil  but we sustained twenty two casualties:  Capt H.W.W. ROWE. MC & one man being killed and twenty men wounded. The LEWIS GUN on duty seemed unable to pick up the raider.
