Diary

Sept. 25
Birthday. Received box of smokes from Marjorie. Sept. 26 Australians cleared Polygon Wood and captured trenches east of it. Bombing raids at night have been very bad. 40 killed opposite camp. Dud fell in manure pile next door and in fact it is pure luck none have fallen in camp. Civilian across road has been caught signalling through chimney and has been disposed of.
