9 June 1918; Sunday

Up at about [7 written over 6, or vice versa?] o’clock. Paraded and marched off at 9.30. Marched through Dizy and Épernay. Arrived at Pierry1 about dinnertime and found ourselves billeted near a château. The château outhouse to be the hospital. Had a C E service behind the château at night. Only a handful there. Beautiful swans. Walked in the woods later with Harvey and had a long talk.
