GWL 5th July 1915

Rather weary.  Not much sleep for the last six days and a good deal of work.  Also it is very hot and not conducive to sleep!  Your birthday was heavenly and Otto did not make himself at all objectionable.  Did you have a happy day?

Our bold Peter pursues the even tenor of his way and goeth forth at night exploring.  He was much impressed by the sight of his first dead German.  The flies are getting horrid.  For the last day or so I have been labouring at a very fine trench and to-day it was completed – Last night, alas, a mighty bridge, which was part of the scheme, got tired and collapsed.  We, very wrathful, built the devil up again.”
