January 10 Thursday
It has thawed & rained & the snow is vanishing. It is raining now & for 3 hours a terrific bombardment has been going on lights flashing around the dark sky on 3 sides of us. We seem to be in the centre of an horseshoe – with the battle line three parts around. Rumour says that the Germans are massing for a big attack and that our artillery are catching them. All the men seem to think there will be great things doing here shortly
and the bigger then anything done yet.
No tonic again the way of a letter.
