24 January Wed

Beaurainville

Run to Airon St Vst in the afternoon with 3 Cylinder Heads.

Stopped there the night. Much better here.

 The weekly printed information for the illustration opposite follows at the foot of the left hand page. 

[HORSES LEFT UNATTENDED. When there is no scout handy to attend to his horse a soldier makes use of clever, though a simple device. The reins are brought over the horse's head and pushed under the saddle girth, and then drawn out again. The "ribbons" are then taken back and passed through in the form shown in sketch. The result of this knot is that when the horse tries to move his head forward the reins hold him in, as though someone was holding him and he stands still.]

 Right hand page
