Gerald Benham’s notes from diaries 17 September 1915

Gerald Benham’s notes from diaries

17 September 1915 At crack of dawn Col Dumbell came to me & cancelled
reserve order.
We were to attack & Col & I went to reconnoitre the ground. All well & area was clearly defined. On way back to my Coy H.Q. in Holnon Wood I was badly wounded by a shell which appeared to explode very near me. By stretcher to advanced dressing station & then to Casualty Clearing Hospital at Peronne. Cleaned up there.
