Cité St Pierre, January 2, 1918

Wednesday  Today passed fairly quiet just as we were about to move Fritz dropped a few close ones but quieted down later we started to move off about 8 pm and pitted our guns at 10 pm evening was quiet am well

1918 diary 001Hostile activity today is again a little higher than has been usual recently, but “it seems to indicate nervousness rather than an aggressive attitude.” (1)

Percy’s gun is among the last to be moved to its new position farther to the right of the line. (2)

Percy’s new diary is much smaller than last year’s, easier to tuck into a tunic pocket or in a corner of a kitbag.
