FRIDAY, JANUARY 5th

[English Farm. Brigade Headquarters]

On arrival this side we found Gen. Nugent’s own car awaiting us, and so did the journey most comfortably, and got here at 6.00 p.m. after a lunch at Calais—we disembarked there for reasons I cannot explain. Came straight to Bde. H.Q. Nugent went home for 14 days today, and Griffith is commanding Div. Lucky I postponed my journey, as there was no car available yesterday. A lovely crossing and no crowd. Fergie came down after dinner. Shill. in a rest camp, but is much better. Bde. H.Q. move to B_____ [Bailleul] on Sunday to be more central, as two Bns. are near there. G. doesn’t go till 20th, so I suppose I shall command Bde. till Feb 20th. Quite comfy here, two rooms in a hut and a fire. Billets in B­­­_____ [Bailleul].
