Forty Fourth Day of of the Third Battle of Ypres

Wednesday 12th September 1917

Today there have been no attacks and also no rain. The air and ground around Ypres is never quiet, however. There is always the noise of artillery, near at hand or far away, always rifle shots and machine gun bursts identifiable somewhere in the acres of mud surrounding the shattered skeleton of a once pretty town.
