Malcolm White in Hannescamps - 8 April, 1916

from Two Men: A Memoir, page 234:

I then want to tell you about the spring day we had yesterday, at the Transport place two miles back; and how at the same time, within a radius of 200 yards, a Band and a 9.2 battery played together to an audience of Tommies with bow legs leading horses, fluttering pigeons and an austere grey church steeple, and me.
