December 1916
a considerable number of casualties.
18th I have been on the same work in Needle trench since the 13th & have also built a machine-gun position for purpose of defence against aeroplanes which are numerous & at times fly very low. We have been shelled heavily most of the time & have had a fair casualty list.
