11 October 1918; Friday

Up about 7 o’clock. Did nothing during morning. In the afternoon went into wood to prepare some broken down billets and moved into them after tea. Wet night. Glanced over a little French. Rather miserable over the change. Heard that we have Le Cateau1. Got down at about 8 o’clock.

  1. Le Cateau: Le Cateau-Cambrésis, 22km E. of Cambrai on the D643; Michelin square N7.
