“Everything now is covered with a thick mantle of snow, as it has been snowing hard without ceasing for the last few days. The winds are bitterly cold too. On the 26th Oct. I met Capt. Hughes, M.C. who is in charge of the Ambulance Train, and Lt. Commander Young, who commands the armoured train up here. He lost his right arm at Zeebrugge. Capt. Rosenfeldt went out into the forest in the afternoon on a shooting expedition, but didn’t bag anything. He brought back, however, great tales of all the bears, wolves, elephants etc. that he had encountered!”
