Up at about 7 o’clock. Went along to billet and got a place next to Billy. Walked out with him in the morning. Warned to go to number 18 C C S, in the afternoon after 2 o’clock. Arrived shortly after 2 o’clock and did nothing during the afternoon but look round the place. Did a little French at night and read a bit. Prospects none too pretty. Wrote home.
