Diary Entry - 30th August, 1916

Wednesday, it rained hard all day and turned quite cold, reminding one that winter is well on its way back once more. I was at the OP all day, having gone up at six a.m. in the morning. Dixon was up from the 71st. As there was nothing doing, we spent most of the day together. He hunted round in the afternoon and found a more comfortable spot further forward, with a splendid view of the trenches, and he moved straight into it, but Suttie would not let me move until he had seen it himself. So I spent the rest of the day in my little tin hutch. The battery was shelled during the afternoon.
