Describes trying to sleep while the ground shakes with gun fire and shells dropping, waking up to a shell having been dropped 3 feet from his shelter, how he wishes he were at home. Describes being in a ‘queer predicament,’ where he wants to bathe with a tin of water, but is scared to take his clothes off in case he has to run from shells at any moment.
