Thursday 26 April 1917


Marched at 3 A.M. as enemy threatened our Flanks, did not require a Blanket last night & the dew is not so heavy. Water is still our trouble. I have not washed for 2 days & never had clothes off since this scrap started. Guns always firing from 60 Howitzers & 18 po. Field guns. Horses are still very fit I am glad to say.

[The following sentence crossed through.] Received letter from Laura April 2nd. All's well, but England is really awakening to the fact that a war is on & I was disgusted with a lot I saw at home.

I have no INK for Fountain Pen so forgive pencil but don't send any INK I could not carry & must wait.
