MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7th

A busy day, but mostly in the cellar. Russell came to see us, and the man commanding the Battery-one Wilson. I don’t know him. The poor unlucky Downs had about 50 4.2s into their line a.m. and lost three men. Things have been very quiet on our front all day. Have plenty soup stocks and choc. at present, both very useful during the move. Was up early this a.m. and it was glimmering dawn at 6:30 a.m. ‘At.’ and Charlie Johnston are splendid. He took me out to his advanced post this a.m. Ken is still doing Staff Captain. Yes, the Speaker’s letter was A1. Do you gather where we are? About 2 miles to 2½ miles S [south] from our last time in the line.
