https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zwwv9j6 video clip to help you gain an insight to what the trenches were like.
Today has been quite exciting but shocking actually. It was me and the lads first day training and seeing our trenches. Training was fun because I got to hold my rifle for the first time! The trenches were worse than I expected them to be. I know they're trenches but I thought we would have our own space. They are muddy, wet and smelly. I am feeling hungry, but the officers laughed shamefully at me when I asked for more food. The food is absolutely horrible. Getting decent hot food from the field kitchens to the front line trenches could be impossible. All I really had today was canned meat (which was horrible). Though this is my first day so I can't really complain. I would explain my day to day routine but I've forgot most of it. We basically have to wake up an hour before sun up and I was taught how to do patrols. Then we had breakfast and did our chores. To be honest we haven't done much today anyway.
In spite of that I'm looking forward for the adventure of a life time. At least that's what they told me when I signed up for the war. Would I say I'm patriotic? Kind of, I don't really want to get killed though, who would?
I have to go now as it is time to sleep. I am not hopeful for a lot of rest as I have to sleep on the damp floor of the trenches.
