January 1st, 1915

Целый день я был в тоскливом настроении, бездействие ужасно, мы почти месяц вдали от позиции. Здесь стоит 105-ая Казанская пешая дружина, и вырыты окопы с проволочным заграждением.

I was in poor spirits the entire day. Idleness is terrible, and we’ve been away from the front for nearly a month. The 105th light infantry unit from Kazan is stationed here, and there are trenches with barbed-wire barriers.
