I took his supper up. Its an awful hole. Only a thin pathway between a perfect quagmire to the hut were the guard rest.
Friday. Jany 8th. Finishing trenches. Night manoeuvres – a farce.
Saturday. Orderley cyclist. 7 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. Had a good many messages to take. Glad I got this job instead of Transport Guard.
Monday. More trench digging went out at 7.45 a.m. and didn’t get back to dinner till 3.45. No further parade, but went to the pictures with Stan, Ben and Bob.
Tuesday. Route march through Bridge, Street End and Chartham, 15 miles. Lovely day. Football in afternoon lost 4-2. Good game.
Wednesday. Jany 13th. My 24th Birthday.
Received many presents from home. Big sham fight we did nothing but hang about. Ben
More trench digging at 7.45 a.m.
