Winter Has Arrived

Tuesday 12th December 1916: From our Correspondent in the Field

The adjutant of the 2nd Battalion, in the front line at Berles-au-Bois, tells me that they had a heavy fall of snow early this morning. As your correspondent looks out of the window whilst typing these words the track outside his tent is an ugly beige slush whilst the ruins of Albert close by are blanketed in sepulchral white.
