Diary Entry - 8th May, 1916

Monday was another nasty cold day, spent at the detached section. It rained the greater part of the day and, as I could not get a fire going without being asphyxiated, I had rather a miserable day. The chief event of the day was that the battery had a premature behind us and the side of the shell missed a detachment of ours working on a dugout by inches – needless to remark, it is a K pipsqueak battery. The new officers' dugout behind the shrine is very comfortable after the old tent, and the wire netting bed looks inviting.
