Rain. Have located a dugout in La Targette village. Does not suit, too damp! Try another – too many rats! Try another – satisfaction. Lt Wallis says too far from HdQrs but cannot use his brain to provide me with quarters there. Maps are spoiling for the damp has got at them. Damn fools these so called officers. Would that they had to foot the bill of cost. Fritz shells heavily with trench mortars.
