Friday Oct 5 1917
Set off at ten am on cycle for Wizernes. Passed through Blendecques, advanced G.H.Q. and had a wet S.O.B. dinner (?) and drum up (?) on platform.
Entrained in cattle trucks at 1.45 p.m. Arrived Bapaume at midnight. Same old desolate spot again.
Transport ran over my byke so had a rough ride to camp at Barastre (map).
Shoved in a very draughty Nissen hut and perished.
