watching the planes strafe Jerry
has passed to almost a scare of
what can happen to any of us
(beautiful weather) Rickertt had
hole drilled in his coffe cup by
50 cal. 3 killed & four wounded on
wood detail - fear of being
bombed prevalent - everyone
looking at damage like sight
seerer gazing at strange &
forbidding places (5 dead - 11 wounded)
Planes could be seen or heard
constantly throughout the day
today. Rumors say the yanks
are 20 miles west. Rumor says
shortage of food in camp will
required the evacuation of
camp which will take place
by Sat and will be toward
the western front Rumors
Rumors! Everyone is anxious
& eager to believe anything &
everything now & they all
eat up rumors of every type.
