SUNDAY, JANUARY 28th

Another hard frost and sunny day, with N.E. wind. Had a long walk round the line, started at 9.30 a.m. and got back at 1.30 p.m. Very useful. Line quiet last night and this morning. Did you see the Home Honours?


Footnote

Lieutenant Colonel Blacker was referring to the Honours list in connection with the Dublin rising of the previous year, which was published in the London Gazette on 24 January 1917. In addition, mentions in despatches were published in the London Gazette on 25 January 1917. The former list was notable for the award of the Military Medal to two female civilians.
