Friday 2 February 1917

One gets very tired of the eternal sand, in face, ears tucker Bed etc. One continual dust storm for a week – We must eat lbs of it cooking in the open – but again MUD is worse.

Terrific sand storm. Think the worst we have had.

Enemy airships over again last night. Got pen going again.

Allanson is despatch rider now.

Did I explain a new nice sort of sandal the Infantry wear in about 4 sizes bigger than boots & strapped on like snow shoes the idea is to make marching easier.
