Diary Entry - 5th January, 1918

It was very cold in the Nissan Hut during the night and I could not keep my feet warm at all, practically shivering all night. Our stove gave out so little heat that I went down to McKenna's hut (veterinary officer) and spent the evening there. Siggers and I walk up to the spill heap behind Hermies in the morning as all BCs were to meet the Colonel there at ten thirty a.m. I was still bitterly cold, though the sun was shining weakly and we walked each way, a distance of some [illegible - possibly 9] miles in all. The business was not long in being completed as it was only a matter of choosing perspective gun positions in case of a retirement.
