Diary of a Dispatch Rider

Fritz has bought a pup today. The umpth* squadron moved last night & today for the first time Fritz started shelling their old aerodrome steadily!
He is still (or rather again) swinging ‘em over near us. They come at intervals with a lazy drone or a mild whistle and bump or crash. One gets used to ‘em after the first few have given the idea of their destination. It’s rotten at night though when one is awakened & half asleep hears the crash of a near one intensified by the stillness. Morale seems to go to sleep with one!
*John's obfuscation of the squadron number. This was probably 5th Squadron, whom the company war diary notes had joined 13th Squadron at Les Hameau.
