Larkhill, January 8, 1917

Monday     Fired for the last [time] weather rotten 8 hours wind snow and rain out all the time no shelter got drenched t’was very cold —

Percy was not alone in this opinion:

“Larkhill, in January, is no summer resort; the penetrating cold winds which continually swept over the rolling plain, varied with days of intermittent sleet and snow, did not tend to make for the comfort and joy of the occupants of the many camps scattered about within easy reach.”(1)
