Saturday 18th March: Proven
We are to be here for some time are going to run this place for the sick of the Division. The other two Ambulances of the Division are going to look after the wounded. This village of Proven is only a few miles in Belgium and is only a small place about 10 miles from the nearest point of the firing line. One good thing about this place-everything is cheaper here than in France. The weather these last few days has been splendid.
