Transcript: 

It is just beginning to get light. I have not been to bed yet tonight but as we have to stand to arms at 3 o’clock every morning it is not worth while turning in now until 4 o’clock when I can sleep on until breakfast. The Germans have been very quiet all night – out mending their wire most of the time to judge by the sound. We have been out in front too, listening for possible patrols and seeing what little there is to be seen. There is a field of tall grass now between the two lines and it is very hard to see anyone lying down even a yard or so away.
