25th Snowing. Very little is heard from Fritz these days. Five lads are steel chasing here.
26th Raining and cold. Fritz by a 7 day time fuse timed by the clock of the Bapaume Town Hall blew that place up to day at 11.45am. There were only HQ casualties.
27th Cold and rain and sleet. Our artillery is fairly active. Our troops are now approx 10 miles past Bapaume. Cecil Sutton pulled a tooth for Fastue. Gee! it was the funniest act of dentistry ever yet witnessed. Some bombardment in progress.
28th Cold. Business is very quiet. No success re allotment. Wrote to Sylvia. No mail.
