How these maps & the changes in them are our very being - it is a most extraordinary thing but just at this moment there is neither a shell nor a bullet coming over our trench though a few minutes ago I was nearly put out of commission by a big shell which exploded very close - The concussion gives one a very peculiar feeling & if it is repeated two or three times is bound to have some effect whether one can disguise it or not.
