WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19th

Berry returned last night—a horrible journey—‘Viper’ no cabins, a walk of two miles from steamer to train in dark and wet, a 17 hours journey in a 2nd class, with only one chance of a meal. Mess cart met him at a rail head, 7 miles, and got him here at 8:30 p.m., wearied and tired; he is bright as ever today.


Footnote

When Dr Berry went on leave on 2 January, his duties were undertaken by Captain Samuel Scott, Officer Commanding ‘C’ Company. He was a doctor by profession and a few days after Dr Berry’s return, Scott’s transfer to the Royal Army Medical Corps took effect. He joined 108th Field Ambulance, where he spent the rest of the war.
