Lovely sunny frosty day, no more snow, not so cold last night. Life is very busy just now. The 9th are so strong it’s hard to fit them into the line. They are now more than 200 stronger than the others. Leave opens again, but we only get eight places every five days, instead of 11. Big strafe on between 4.00 and 5.00 a.m. on our right—next Division. Bosche tried to get in, but failed. Was round the line this morning and now have a long afternoon in the office.
