Усиленно говорят, что мы будем наступать, будет высажен десант в тылу немцев. Вчера напрыгивал на лошадь и полетел вместе с ней через голову и сильно ушиб левую руку.

We are being told urgently that we will advance, that there will be a landing in the rear of the German army. Yesterday I jumped on my horse and flew along with her, over her head, and severely injured my left arm.
