The Ghoorkas suffered thro the frost, half the Battalion was frost bitten –
The Ghoorkas get on well with our men who try to teach them our ways – Watched them playing CARDS, to shuffle the Pack then throw them into the air & then collect.
More letters & Papers today & good news re Russians coming to our help through Roumania.
