THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7th

Major General O S W Nugent DSO

Major General O S W Nugent DSO

Men quite recovered today. Took them for 5 mile march to stretch their legs. General Nugent came round this morning—programme to stay here for a week, then go for instruction into trenches, and then after a week of that do divisional training. Met Clive—liaison officer between Joffre and French. Most interesting. German losses in Champagne alone, 40,000 killed.

We all slept very well and are quite comfortable. Clive quite sanguine as to how things are going—in a sane way. Our Army Commander, ‘Munro’, inspects us tomorrow. (3rd  Army.)

Sanitary arrangements chez M. le Curé, hopeless.
