30 June 1916

Posted by Dick on June 30, 1916
A very thick wet fog this morning, so I couldn't dismiss the detachments till 6:30. Bathed this morning.

General Casson has taken command up here in place of General Koe. Our water ration has now been increased to 1.5 gallons a day per man, as a lot comes up on the railway now it is finished. 

The intelligence report tonight reports a considerable increase of enemy troops at all their advanced posts, and the R.F.C. think it is quite probable we shall be attacked in about four days time.
