MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20th

Fine night, but red sky this morning, and watery look. More rain coming. River down to nearly normal level.

4.30 p.m. No rain today after all, and though everything is messy we have got the trenches square. I find Ovilux no good for this sort of warfare, heavy and a bother. The little Vickery’s one is splendid. Yes, it’s splendid getting Beaucourt. They may find some traces of our men. We don’t get real gales out here, but wind is not bothersome. Pratt’s come in for lunch and gave me much useful information. It was a really good show, 170 in the raid, and only one killed and 13 wounded, and remained in the Bosche lines for an hour. Saxons have replaced Wurtemburghers—from the Somme, and rather weak.

The wristwatch, ususally worn by women, came into its own during the First World War. J C Vickery imported watches and straps that were very popular.
