We move off from Blaringhem for somewhere. Troops very tired. Bad feet and bad boots.
Roads very bad for marching – cobble stones. Heavy marching order with skin fur coats. Oh what a load 55 to 60 pounds – many fall out. We camp at Meteren in a barn, no change of underwear until leaving Winchester. Getting bully beef and biscuits. Water bad. Again no sleep.
*Bully Beef – Corned Beef
