“July 24th  I suddenly spied two panic‐stricken Jocks blundering back from the trenches over the open. I went out and brought them in to the C.O. I don’t suppose the case will go further, partly because the C.O. is human and understanding, and partly for the honour of the regiment. I think he let them recover themselves and sent them back.”
