GWL 6th August 1917

An enthusiastic noise lover is playing our gramophone and it is quite impossible to think of anything at all.  There  is nothing to write about.  Very hot indeed just now.  The surprising thing is that whereas last year we had a thunderstorm almost every day, this year we have had hardly any at all.  I had a letter from Miss Meiklejohn to-day.”

This day saw the first phase of the Battle of Marasesti.  An initial German and Austro-Hungarian offensive was ultimately thwarted by the combined Romanian and Russian forces.  This was the last major action on the Romanian front in the War.
