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.
More Mud I think it’s mudland over the ankles in mud!
Sunday again but what use to us… its 7 days a week!
Off duty or should be, they nearly always find us something to do.
More mud I’m just about sick of it!
Off duty but it’s no use for we have nowhere to go and it’s hellish weather
M Harvey killed the first of the 216 siege battery. Brockhurst wounded. I think the boys were over the top this morning but I don’t know for sure, we put plenty of stuff behind the lines
Off duty today or supposed to be, but we get bits of things to do.
Very busy today. Sent 145 shells over to the Fritz and our gun just 46 in 40 min or 46 in 31 ½ min. Out of action 8 ½ min
Church parade. I don’t think everyday is alike here… we cannot tell one from the other!
