Dressing did not take very long - the

operation only consisted of throwing 

off a blanket. After breakfast I

indulged in the luxury of a wash

& shave about a pint of water being

available. It was 48 hrs. since I had

washed so I felt much refreshed.

I have passed the day in the woods

sitting in the shade & reading a 

novel. A light novel by Curtis Yorke

"That Little Girl" advertised as a 

change from the war strain. I had

to retire to shelter for a time as the

Boche was putting a few "fire ..."

just far enough away to keep things

pleasant. I am writing now

in an "arm chair" (made of soil

the middle of some bushes. The 

is very comfy & has a good back

though I couldn't get any springs.
