Up at 6.30. Paraded at 7.30 and marched to La Laiterie1. Got car from there to Norfolk House. Went up to pontoon bridge and after staying there a while we were returned to Norfolk House. Carried a case down with Lee Hughes first thing after dinner. Jack Trayner, Brooksbank and Hughes.
Up about 7 o’clock. On fatigue for a short while and then told off to go with the American doctor to see the Divisional column sick. Ernie called for me at noon and I got the afternoon off. Went into Locre. Called at the Y M and had tea and a tune; had tea in a house and then walked in to Mont Rouge. Called in at the Follies and started back shortly after 7 o’clock. Left Ernie about 8.30 near to La Laiterie1. The longest stay yet that we have had together. Enjoyed the day immensely. On return found that Driver had come down with shell shock, and that Holman had taken his place. They had wanted me but I was out. Nick Stack sleeping above me and drunk. He fell out of bed and spent the night on a stretcher on the floor.
