24 November 1916; Friday

Up at 6 o’clock. Marched off 7.30. Marched about 15 miles. Rain * under† all our journey† but only slightly. Arrived at Beaval1 about 3 o’clock. Rested for an hour and had tea on the roadside. Very hilly march. Marched fast and had few rests. Billeted in a decent place. I was to be on guard and did from 7 to 11 o’clock. Got into bed about 11.30. Received parcel from home.


  1. Beaval: probably Beauval (A), on the N25, 5km S. of Doullens, some 17km from Warloy-Baillon (B) as the crow flies; Michelin square F7/G7.
