Saturday 19th April 1941

The war is fairly “steady” and static. A few air raids and shelling on both sides, each day. Our patrols go out, their tanks occasionally break through the wire and are driven off.

Was at the forward OP from 7p.m. yesterday until 10a.m. today. It was in the forward defence lines, by the outer wire and was even quieter than the rear area – in fact I missed several air raids which kept them awake around the exchange that night.
It was pleasantly tense up there,though, and everyone had to stand-to at 5a.m instead of the usual 6a.m.
