Diary Entry - 3rd April, 1917

Bee: The Hun put up very heavy fire last night, about nine p.m, on our trenches. More rain and snow, everything is very slushy and depressing. But there are plenty worse off than we are although it is hard to imagine it at times. Today we had to dismantle one of our gun pits as the floor was too low and the gun could not clear the crest, so had to raise the whole structure. We put over a tremendous lot of heavy stuff today, which must have made the Hun very uncomfortable. More orders in tonight to cut wire – get the other section up and a few particulars about the show. I am going as liaison officer on the day.
