7th This morning I went out near Longueval to locate & make a rough survey of a proposed railway which is to be made from the present railhead to Longueval dump. We were handicapped considerably by the rain which increased during the afternoon & we had to return. The mud is getting worse around here & it is almost impossible to move about in it. We have been issued with long rubber boots which are a great help, as the ordinary boots are of little use. This afternoon we were served out with cigarettes & tobacco sent to us by the "Southern Cross Tobacco Fund" organised by the "Overseas Club."
