We rise at 5:30 am. Blankets rolled in bundle of ten. We parade at 7:30 am in full marching orders for an unknown destination.
We stand in full marching order for ¾ hour before moving off. We pass thro’ some lovely country and lots of private reserves. We go through Warfuss-Abancourt on main road, very straight. Villers-Bretonneux, Blangy, Amiens, thro’ Cagny to Boves where 3 kilometers outside we encamped in tents we pitched ourselves. About 7 pm it rained hard. Boves is quite a town. There are ruins of an old castle on a high hill probably Norman.
