Slept fair. Weather still cold and is still raining. Early roll call is an ordeal.Get back into bed again till soup comes up.Have soup, not quite so much as yesterday. Back to bed, its the only warm place. Bread comes up this afternoon: 10 men to one loaf.We make drink tea, and get our ration. We have nothing to eat now till soup comes up tomorrow. Evening roll call over, we are back in bed. Still full of hopes for a quick release. Still cold.
