Sunday 31st January 1915

As the men were standing to arms at 4 a.m. 4 or 5 shots rang out in quick succession and in a few minutes men had scuttled in from their bivouacs and manned the trenches. After this however all was quiet. Enquiries located the firing opposite one of No.3’s trenches and apparently one or more of the enemy’s snipers had crept down to the bank and could not resist the target offered by a careless sentry. The day which was extremely hot passed quietly. Officers took the opportunity of visiting the length of Canal occupied by the Regiment and for the purpose requisitioned pack horses and all manner of mounts. Capt Cameron who was indisposed yesterday continues unwell. Nothing of importance took place.
