Up at about 7.30. Nothing doing in the morning. Heard definitely that the Italians and French have attacked. Returned to headquarters at night to commence work in the ward with Edgar. Walked from Cauroir to Rieux. Vic Barber and Biggs to our place.
Up at about 8 o’clock and had breakfast late. Walked out to find unit and ultimately found them in Rieux. Had dinner there and got some rations and walked back. Received letter from Charlie dated 10th inst. and glad to know he is all right. Went to the Follies at night with Brigade headquarters. They were not up to usual form.
Up shortly after 7 o’clock. Moved from Avesnes to Cauroir1 by lorry along with the bath people. Parade in cellars but worked hard all day and got a fire in there and made them comfortable by night. Walked out and tried to find the service but failed. Wrote letters.
