Duty. The fine weather of yesterday was short lived. Snow fell again & today is raw & cold with strong wind.
McB & I go off on another stroll after tea. Visit High Wood, that place where perhaps the fiercest fighting took place & doesn't it show it Fritzs Highlanders & Tommies' bones lie bleaching in the weather. Skulls lying round stark & staring – a gruesome sight. Visit Delville Wood & home again.
We get orders to move up the line in the morning.
Receive 4 letters advance guard one each from Bob, Miss Barbara Alec A & Alice McA.
