Wednesday August 23, 1916
I had another bombardment today. Not one of the boys have been hit yet.
A 4th Canadian Division has been started and will take over duties of the 2nd Div. That's us. The rumour is that the 1st Can Div is in England waiting for us; that we will go to St. Omar for about 5 days then go back to England, leaving there to go to Mesopotamia. During the 4 days we, the 26th, have been in the trenches we have had the 87th, one of the new 4 Div Batt'ns in with us, breaking them in.
