Saturday 5th June: Fouquieres/ Beuvry

Leave here today for Beuvry, expect an attack to come off tomorrow Sunday. Left here and arrived at Beuvry at 3 pm. The Germans have been shelling this place very heavy this last week or two, killing a few of the Ambulance we have just relieved. A great difference in the place from the last time we were here in January and February.

The car I am on is on duty for 24 hours at the Advance Aide-post, we have a car there on duty every day. We are on from 10 am today till 10 am tomorrow. We had a fairly busy day with South Wales Borderers wounded. The Germans are dropping a great many bombs into their trenches.

In the afternoon and night, we had it fairly quiet till about 4 am then we had two journeys into our hospital in Bethune.

Wednesday 9th June: Beuvry
