WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd

Frost and fine so far, but looks like snow. Quiet night. We shall bury Wood and Ford [sic] this p.m. Padre being away I shall read the burial service. I believe the 69th Res. Regt. Prussians are opposite us.


Footnote

The German defenders in the area opposite 36th Ulster Division were, in fact, men of Reserve Infantry Regiments 99 and 119, part of 26th Reserve Division, one of two divisions that made up XIV Reserve Corps. An excellent work on the German opposition in this area may be found in the two volumes of ‘The Other Side of the Wire’ by Ralph Whitehead.
