Tuesday 21st Dec
It was very cool last night. To-day it rained & we got a bad time in our little Baggage Pile. We got some Tarpaulins & it kept the rain off but as the ground was so flat the water hung around. We had to dig trenches to carry the water off. I slept in a tin shed in the yard in the evening to escape the wet ground.
