2nd Lieutenants L A L Fink and L H Fox [X550/1/81]

Friday 24th March 1916: The 2nd Battalion have been on the assault course at la Houssoye and the adjutant told us that one man was wounded whilst training. Two officers have just joined - Second Lieutenants L A L Fink and L H Fox(1); and the officers beat the sergeants in a football match by 4 goals to 3. Even when out of the front line and at rest life can be pretty busy.
