16 December 1917; Sunday

Paraded at 8.30 and marched back to Fins headquarters. Left there about 9.30 and arrived at Metz1 after about an hour’s walk. Got a rotten billet. A few men went straight up the line.

  1. Metz: presumably Metz-en-Couture (B), 4km up D17 road towards Cambrai from Fins (A); Michelin map K7.
