4 June 1916

Posted by Dick on June 4, 1916
Service in our mess tent this morning. I think we are the only Church of England unit in the 156th Brigade. I spent nearly all the rest of the morning bathing and basking. A very quiet day.

Poulteney arrived here this morning with fifteen men from the Ammunition Column to take over the ammunition dump here.

An official report in tonight that there has been a big naval action in the North Sea and that each side has lost fifteen ships.
