Evelyn Southwell in Ypres - 3 February, 1916

from Two Men: A Memoir, page 134:

The afternoon was peaceful again, and thank God I have heard the sad songs of the British infantry proceeding from the barn, betokening that my much over-worked men are happy. They have had the devil of a time, and no sympathy from H.Q, for they are put on working parties at once.
