During the week we have had beautiful weather and being dry the trenches are comfortable. My section has been busy clearing, draining Arras Road trench and resetting trench boards during the day shift. The night shift has been very busy making up Headquarters trench – clearing, building up the traverses and getting ready for revetting – at several points we have had to remove bodies from the trench. This trench has been badly knocked about by T. Mortars and Minnies and all the night there is continual sniping rifle fire.
