Monday 28th December 1914

Breastworks. Fatigue work all day fetching water and bricks up to firing line from ruined houses between ours and German lines. Have to go out near German lines at night to fetch straw. La Gheer[1]. Raining hard. Breastworks leaks like ____. Mud worse than ever.


[1] Gheer is a hamlet at the South East corner of Ploegsteert Wood.
