Snow at the Front

Wednesday 17th January 1917

The 6th Battalion has today moved to the Hohenzollern Left Sector on the old Loos battlefield, relieving the 2nd Battalion, York and Lancaster Regiment in the front line. The weather, they report, is quite bad as there has been a very heavy fall of snow. “Gentlemen in England now a-bed” should think of these conditions and be thankful for their ease.
