1st day of 1916
The Hun bombard La Clytte again doing furious damage. Our officers are down with colds including the doctor all in bed. Poor Tommy Atkins has to be up & down despite his cold.
No Celebration of the year as all estimates are out of bounds & also the village of Godewaersvelde + Hitre.
I have a bad attack of neuralgia, headache, backache & pain all over also cold in head and cough. I lay on straw in a windy barn & -Rest
