Yeomanry again moved up to Chocolate Hill to bivouac but were removed to Green Hill

2nd Batt. One of our aeroplanes ( a B.E. 2c) was brought down by German Anti Aircraft guns at 5:15pm in direction of Violaines. Moon too bright for large working parties.

The marriage has taken place at St Swithun's Church Worcester of Sergt WJ Stokes, 8th Worcestershires, only son of John Stokes of Laugherne Road and Miss Freda Lucy Price, daughter of Frederick Thomas Price of Lowesmoor. The ceremony was of a quiet character being attended only by the immediate relatives. Sergt. Stokes arrived in Worcester from the trenches on Thursday and returns to duty next Thursday. He and his wife went straight from the church to the station and caught a train for Harrogate where the brief honeymoon will be spent.
