January 1917
21st I have been ordered back to bed again & last night had a temperature of 101.4.
22nd We received news to-day of a disastrous explosion in a munition factory in the east of London on Friday night (20th) in which over 40 lives were lost & over 100 persons injured. Great damage was caused in the surroundings of the factory which was completely demolished together with a flower mill adjoining it. The weather here is still bitterly cold & although the snow has been thawing for the last three days it is still about three inches thick.
