13 October 1918; Sunday

Up at about 7 o’clock. Heard that we were to move again and moved off about 11 o’clock. Arrived on the etcetera1 of Cambrai near Proville2 before dinner and took over billet with an organ in it. Billy Truman and I were moved over to the hospital in the afternoon and slept there at night. Spent afternoon preparing hospital.


  1. This shorthand outline is exactly as ALL writes “etcetera” elsewhere; he must surely have intended “outskirts”, or a similar word. 

  2. Proville (B): SW. suburb of Cambrai, about 4km from centre and 4km E. of Fontaine-Notre-Dame (A).
