19th January 1916
“Tonight is a quiet night finally. We managed to make some ground in the trenches under no man's land but we lost about 200 cavalry to a blasted ambush gone wrong. Blasted Jerry’s I just want to go home to Mary and my two little blitters. Oh how I miss them. The food here is gross but at least we still have supplies. A regiment down the line abit completely ran out of food, and had to stay hungry for two days until more rations were dropped off. But now there is peace and I must sleep.'
