Day spent in settling down in billets – arranging latrines etc. This is a quiet rural district and very English in appearance and climate. H.Q. are at Hallancourt – about  1 mile from here. The 3rd Field Co. arrived here, very tired, at 10.30pm in heavy rain – allotting billets at that time was a very hard business – better arrangements should have been made for their reception.
