Battalion Diary – February 7, 1917

Location: Witley Camp, North Surrey

8:00am  Usual syllabus for this day except that the O.C’s parade was held from 9 to 10am. This is an inspection of the men and has proven an excellent method of checking any tendency to become slovenly.

1:30 pm  Battalion sports were held under the Authority of the Division. All of the events had several entries. Men took a great interest in the competitions and clean rivalry was worked up between the Companies. “C” Company took the highest number of points.

Strength: Struck off – 5 other ranks transferred to C.C.A.C. (Canadian Casualty Assembly Centre). The Canadian Casualty Assembly Centre was located in Shorncliffe. Men were transferred there for medical assessment for either further treatment or return to duty.
