Left Ouderdom for trenches in afternoon. Have very bad cold & lose speech during evening. Call at Zillebeke & leave part of my trappings there. Go to trench 61, bay 2 & make panorama sketches of German trenches & lines.
The sketch takes one & half hours & all time exposed to enemy snipers.
Enemy throwing over very big shells in Sanctuary Wood. Two of No 4 Co badly hit with enemy shell, trenches firing with heavy stuff. I go along C.M.R. trenches & am stopped many times for “Spying.”
