Friday, 27th September (1918)

Midnight – underground in a little dug-out all to myself.  Another push is in progress and this morning we moved our wagon lines forward a couple of miles.  On prying around we discovered many little dug-outs and appropriated them.  As usual, with night the real day’s work began.  Dark and overcast; the bosche did not molest us.
