Edith Appleton in Bailleul - 9 September, 1915

from Diary of Edith Appleton, 9 Sept. 1915, page 52:

Went for a lovely walk yesterday morning through the fields towards Neuve Église. In the far distance somebody's guns were booming, but nearer, a regimental drum and fife band was practising.... I enjoyed it until I was so sleepy that I had to march in time to the music to get myself moving to come back.
