Date: July 8th 1917

July 8 - Started night work in Havrincourt Woods to complete the line Trescault (Trescoult). More or less shell fire for the week but we all came out without a scratch.

On pass yesterday I lost the diary I had kept since joining up. Layed (sic) it down along side a tank we had been inspecting and came away without it, but I still had most of the dates of special events to the present.
