The doctor and I managed to keep dry though our feet suffered through being wet overnight. Many others in the Bn. were not so fortunate and had water running into their dug-outs all night.
There is an art in digging a dug-out. Our planes have been very active again this afternoon.
but A few hun planes came over but did not stay long.
It has been fine all day. All the boys have been busy improving their dug-outs with timber and blankets taken from the deserted village of Villers Bretonneux. Our boys have been collecting bicycles left behind by civilians.
