post next morning.

Carried under an irregular fire from the enemy all day, had a few fairly narrow escapes, at night carried again – got lost in dark, but eventually found our dug-out.

During the night Fritz landed one shell into the side of our dug out – another one the top, both splashing us with mud but doing no damage, same dislodging a few feet of earth. No rations came for us & it was very cold.

Carried again but very few shells came over to disturb us. A little village to our left was shelled heavily, passed a quiet day & went for rations straightened our dug out.
