16th November (1918)

Freezing day; the frost remaining on the ground throughout.  They keep us going from dawn to dark.  Apparently the only thing of real importance after beating the Bosche is to clean the harnesses.

Wherever we spend the winter, its terrors will be minimised by the knowledge that it is our last on this side of the world.
