On Guard at the Billet which lasts till 6 pm when we again get orders to go back to the trenches. Detailed in sections old soldiers and young ones go together for sentry. These trenches are only 25 to 50 yards away from the Germans so one has to be careful in the day time. Passed a very miserable night. It froze hard. Awake all night and standing to our arms. We sniper and so do the Germans.
