Wednesday 23rd June 1915

Berguette. Stroll round Isbergues by the factory in the morning. Usual afternoon visit to the canal only this time manage to get on to a train to the bridge instead of having to walk along the railway line. The line looks very nice with flowers each side, poppies, daisies and some tall blue flower and grass between the metals. Bridge referred to is temporary bridge over canal as they are rebuilding bridge which they blew up when the Germans were about here. Factory was originally for steel, but now used to manufacture munitions. After tea go round to the ‘Café Restaurant’ and have games, billiards and draughts. Guard.
