Tuesday, 5th February (1918)

Pay day.  Plenty of paper currency of the Republic of France flying about.  Our tucker has been very good of late; ham and mashed spud for dinner today.  Our new canteen right on a busy road is flourishing.  Now we are able to get baths and changes so often we are hardly worried with “passengers”.  There is a phonograph going in the next hut – somehow phonographs and all kinds of entertainments here strike me as incongruous.
