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.
Out all day in rain got to bed about 1am
Starting to move. Taken all our stuff and what a job!
Snowing and out all day. Parcel and letter from Guide. Wrote back to Guide And E Garsden
Had a very nice easy day nothing doing. No shells flying about. It just looks like the war is over. Letter from home.
One of the most interesting days of the lot. I set off at 3am and did not arrive back 8pm been to Rocquigny or Rocquenes. *Raining nearly all the time.
Messing about out in the cold but soon go under just like a lot of mice we come out for a lump of cheese. No mail.
Supposed to be going in a new gun emplacement but don’t know for sure. No shells or anything flying about just like peace but no hopes yet.
Two parcels from home nothing to shout at. The Germans said to be on the run at night we could see the villages burning.
Lovely day and not much work. Parcel from home and one from E Garsden Letters from Fred H and Lot
