17 July 1916

Posted by Dick on July 17, 1916
One of the men killed a snake this morning, 5 ft 1", rather the colour and markings of an adder, a most poisonous looking brute. A Boche plane came over during breakfast, the mountain battery loosed off at him, but he was flying at a great height and they couldn't touch him.

Bathed this morning. Good news from the French front in the official telegram this evening. Up in the O.Pip tonight.
