4th June 1915
I’ve been in the army for 7 months now. I have to live in the trench. It’s horrible. We’ve had so many gas attacks, I’m barely alive. No Man’s Land is a terrible place. Patrols have to go out at night to capture the germans, some survive, some die. We all have to keep our gas masks at all times. Horrible things they are, smell terrible. I’m surprised the Germans don’t hear us squeaking with them on.
