This is our 5th day at Dickebush billets. We are called the "Dickebush Fusiliers". At these billets we are much farther away from the front line and now we have quite a long jog going to work and back. So far we have only had to carry sand bags up to the front, fill them and then use them to build up the trenches but we hear that tomorrow we are to work on another part of the front line.
