Diary References: “Lent Dave Boyer 2 francs to buy more booze. Foolish practise. Mustn’t do it again. Give him a lecture instead, drier than booze perhaps, but money is scarce in France,” 2:16 Nov ’15; “Dave Boyer wounded in the head,” 2:2 Jun ’16. According to Hodder-Williams, 118, Pte. Boyer was wounded 2 June 1916 and struck off strength on 16 July 1916.
