My Own Darling,

  I have been out in the 

snow all day on a Brigade tactical

scheme. I was on the Directing Staff

so had to criticise the work of others

instead of doing things myself. Curious

isn't it my being "clever" enough

to criticise the Battalion Commanders.

I enjoyed the walking this morning.

The air was dry & crisp, the snow

crunched underfoot & the sun was

shining. In the afternoon it began

to snow quickly & soon the roads

were thickly covered again to a depth

of several inches. A strong wind

was blowing when we were coming 

home & blew the snow into our eyes.

My hair was white over, my left eye

I kept closed for comfort & evidently

Dean & Fox did the same for when

we eventually struck a village

it turned out to be the next one
