Hot & dry. Leave Winnezeele at 9:30 am via Oudezeele Ledinghem & to Esquelbecq . Arr: at station 3:30 PM. To Conteville near Amiens by way of Calais. (Left Esq 9 @ 4:30 PM) Boulogne. Arrive at 2:30 am. March to Cramont – 3 miles & stay up till Sunday. The Brigade & Regiment move off at 8 am & leave me behind in the school with the schoolmaster to make a map of the trenches NOT a word of English is spoken in the village. What a predicament? Finish one plan & Pte Llewellyn calls for it on a motorcycle at 8 PM. He takes my rifle and pack sack back with him. I arrange to stay the night with the instituter (school master) at the village school. Delightful bed & breakfast.
