April 1917
16th No. 4 section were given a holiday to-day, & after an inspection this morning were free to do as we liked.
The weather was glorious to-day but towards night it started to rain lightly.
18th Yesterday & today I have been looking after the loading of 16 G.S. Wagons with bricks from Beulencourt to be taken to the Guidicourt Rd. where the remainder of the section have the 29th Batn. working on repairing it. (I had 50 of them in Beulencourt)
The weather has been very bad rain snow & sleet with a wind, almost a gale, blowing all the time
There have been a succession of heavy bombardments along our front yesterday & to-day & continued through the night.
