12 June 1916; Monday

Up at 6 o’clock. Shaved and dressed. Detailed off for water duties. Broom smashed so they had to go to town for water and I got off. Took pay books up for pay. Read a bit. Walked into Vignacourt† at night. It rained as we were going up.

Snails†. Big spider. Charlie Ford and the lot of them drunk and had a sing song.
