On the Somme, not so bad for new years day. Attached to the 49th Siege Battery. What a place I wouldn’t have told anyone about this place. I hope we are not here long.
Digging all day long I think I shall be a navvy when it’s over! I don’t think!
Just waiting for breakfast and I can’t half put it at one side. Two hours off then work again then I suppose it’s Bully Beef stew for dinner
Making XC dug out. Action at night supposed S.O.S but only a flask after working till 12:30 from 8 am. They keep us up as long as possible but, they won’t always have their say,
Very dull this morn and looks like being a wet day.
No diary entry today (Next entry tomorrow)
I had a good long talk with B Hunter.
Still digging gun pits Metz
Sometimes we get a look in the village and other times we don’t but the gerry’s haven’t left much stuff behind. Never mind I think we are winning.
Battle of Waterloo some 102 years ago but we keep on digging
