Up at 10:30 am
Got a meal & walked round. Engineers making trenches around the farm. I forage for food & am able to purchase 2 slices of bread at [1p] (two sous)per slice. Returned to my quarters in the Backhouse. Made bed of straw & tried to sleep. Beautiful night moonlight. Heavy bombardment on the line between Ypres & Lille. Cold is so severe that sleep in impossible. Up at 8 am.
