Nights in the Trenches

Saturday 27th November 1915: Private Albert E Grummit of 8th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment tells us: “It is wet and cold here now and that makes it bad. The nights in the trenches seem a week long and when we get out for a rest they don’t seem two minutes. I don’t know if Charlie has got the best place in the Mediterranean, but I wish I had gone there, as it is warmer anyway”.
