thing I gave my own Water away to one

of the wounded not thinking about my

self the Fellows who were badly hit

were going mad for Water so I might

say they kept us busy but the sight

of some of there Wounds was Awful we

had a very terrible night as about every

2 Hours the Germans sent out a very

large Listening Patrol and as they came

along we thought they were going to

counter attach and take their Line

Back which kept us very busy on the

Fire step anyway I supose they were

wondering wether we were going to

advance Farther on but we Intendin ... 

Staying here as we had now Straightened
