17 May 1918; Friday

Dreadful all night. German aeroplanes over the top of us the early part of the evening. Dreadful along the coast in the dark. Slept a little after the early hours of the morning. Slept a good bit during the day. No tea to drink and not much to eat. Very hot sun. Watched the passing scenery and it was very pretty. Turned it in about 10 o’clock. Humphreys illustrated an old woman’s face in a passing train.
