I had a horrible feeling I was going to be warned for stable Picquet last night but I missed & Tom Sherry went on, & at 6.30 I had my bed made down in my bivvie & was well on my way to dreamland. I could hardly beleive it this morning when Perce went round making that beastly "stand to" noise at 5.15. Ten hours is a fair go any way so I could'nt grumble. I was sent down on pump fatigue after breakfast & felt that I had some thing against the cooks for being so late with breakfast as he had to break off eat ing to suddenly for his liking & saddle up & go to the pump. The wells are over half mile away. A sqad men did not turn up so he had a bit more exercise on the pump handle than I cared about then I drew to see who would releive the chap for dinner & lost so thinks I have had a crook morning
