The Diary in January

Wynne's husband is to get some leave after 6 months.  Mud and troop trains.

January 1st – 5th

Losses at sea, Foul weather at home. Haig takes over in France, and Herbert is mentioned is Despatches.

January 6th – 10th

Mud at home as well as in France, but news arrives that Wynne’s husband is to get leave after 6 months away. Aldershot in the blackout.

Wynne goes to London to meet Herbert.

Her description of Victoria Station when the troop trains arrive is particularly moving – note the story of the whistling group.

January 16th – 19th

News from India, “Spring Pies”, and Herbert’s leave ends.
The Diary breaks off until March
