Diary Entry - 5th January, 1916

Very little doing. In the morning, two generals and the usual amount of followers came round to see the new gun pit. They seemed quite pleased with it, and it certainly does look a pretty strong pit, but, if a 5.9 hit it square, I would not like to be inside. The aeroplanes were very active during the morning, and our anti-aircraft people seem to be asleep half the time - they did not fire on them. Bee came round in the afternoon for tea. He had been to B├ęthune with Pat.


  1. An element of frustration creeping in here ...

  2. Not quite the respect for one's elders and betters that the generals plus followers might have wished for.
