 ...  My idea is that the German Sour Officer had been making

a mess for the benefit of this superiors never proposing to

find anything.

 ...  The oddest place perhaps for notes to escape detection was

the pocket of a German N.C.O, who afterwards returned

them to the owner.

X We ourselves had had a service here on Xmas day. In

which the Doctor constituted himself parson.

 ...  There was a certain Belgian Of General here. He was taken in the

ruins of one of their forts. We did not as a rule see him as he

lived on a different part. His views on the duration of the war

won, though time has shown fairly accurate, thought to be very

pessimistic. On new year day he had a parade of us all and

shaking hands with the seniors made a nice speech in French

wishing me us Good Fortune etc for the new Year.

The German in charge of the Pay or swine geld we called it was

the only one who had any idea of manners, he even took

his hat off when he came into our room.
