Tuesday 30 January 1917
Relieved yesterday by the Yeomanry but our men are happier away in front where there is the chance of a [indecipherable] or two & an occasional shot. I won a Rooster last night from A Squadron. We each had only 1 & as there are 4 officers in each Squadron we tossed Snakes or Pheasants on Gippy coins, not heads & tails. SNAKE won.

Thank you for song. Very good – Dolly does not sing or play – I like Dorothy from other people, Dolly for myself & YOU.
