SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7th

Very rough crossing and fearfully crowded boat. C. had come by car to B_____, [Bailleul] and the car waited for me. Great luck. So after a hurried report I came straight on here (R.L.), [Red Lodge] arriving 12.15 a.m. Quite good. Fergie’s sports on. Fine early, but heavy showers have begun. Very dark night, and we had to put out all lights in the car for last two miles. Much work awaiting me. Hardly a minute all day; many arrangements to be made. All p.m. at boxing. Day went off well in spite of showers. Now concert, then dinner. Pratt stays here tonight. Goes on leave tomorrow. Such heaps arrears of work.


Footnote

The Battalion spent the day engaged in sports—a sports’ day for everyone in the morning and a boxing competition in the afternoon. A concert was held at 6.00 p.m. that evening at which the Division’s band played.
