day for sixpence a day Pouring rain and

Knee deep in mud no cover in the Woods

only our waterproof sheet to lay on and

overcoats over us and bully beef and

biscuits to live on we had a very pleasant

fortnight here this was not about the 

middle of Oct 1915 and after this we 

were very glad to make our way up the

line again we went now to the right of

Loos again gradually working our way

towards the Somme we went up the line

again on the hairpin sector and very

muddy up to our knees in it but a bit

better than working party.
