Sunday 31st January 1915

Slept soundly and well until 12.10am. In afternoon had hot bath. Told Tom to bring Douglas to tea but didn’t see him at Sunday School.
Chapel, Rev. B. Arnfield preached on shortcomings as illustrated by politicians whose policy was “a bed shorter than he could stretch himself on and the net shorter than that he could wrap himself up in[“]. Good sermon.
Straight from Chapel arrived in camp 9.10pm. News of German submarine U21 enterprise, sinking 3 merchant ships in Irish Sea. Also sunk two off French coast without warning crews, poor sportsmen. Only small vessels. Couldn’t catch those which ran.
