TUESDAY, JANUARY 11th

Lunched with Brigadier, and sat talking to him till 4.00 p.m. G.H.Q. was bombed last night! Haig is away. Hutment scheme is to take precedence of everything. 100 men under Ensor go out about 7.00 p.m. from here to build huts, and the men here improve and repair existing billets, to accommodate 400 more men, under R.E. [Royal Engineers] supervision. ‘G’ says no won’t move, also says his opinion neither we nor the Huns could possibly get through. The French will begin to decline in numbers about June. Germans have begun (just). We and Russkys will increase for certainly a year. The Downs are close to us, villages almost touching, but I have not seen any of them yet.
