A very wet night has turned everything into mud again. Leave has been stopped, and everyone to be back by 18th. Am distressed that eight or nine have not got away; very hard on them. Div. H.Q. are coming in here after all, so a general squash up will ensue. I don’t think we shall stay here long, but one never knows. Am going over to M_____ [Mesnil] this p.m. to see ‘A’ and ‘B’. Saw one of the new officers, Andrews. Was in a bank at Bangor. Was favourably impressed. The R.A. [Royal Artillery] General moves out of here today, I believe. Day turned blustery and fine, but cold wind. A draft of 26 expected today.
