Up about 2.30 a.m.  Parade at 4 a.m., marched quietly to Govt. Siding arriving about 5, and without slightest fuss or commotion started quietly out about 6.  Reached Southampton about 8.30.  Told boat would sail about 5 in the afternoon – was appoined O.C. Troops for voyage.  Our Landing Return was 3 officers, 1 W.O., 2 Sergeants, 6 Corporals, 240 Pioneers, 5 drivers, 4 batmen, 10 mules, 2 G.S.Wagons, 1 water cart, 2 motor bicycles.  Had very comfy journey but arrive at Havre just too late to go in with tide so had to stand off and wait for next tide.
