the faithful Sally was with me. 

Camp was reached about 9. We got

the men settled into tents as best

we could & then went into the 

village to an estaminet a small café which

had promised us supper. It would

be about 11:30 when I got an

excellent dish of veal followed

by some really good coffee. I had

a billet allotted to me - to share with

Fox - near the camp. I reached it

soon after midnight & we found two

very comfy beds - actually had

sheets on them. It is much better

than sleeping on the ground in

a tent & I had a good night's 

rest until 8 am this morning.

We had breakfast at the estaminet

at 9 am & spent the morning in
