August 11, 1918
On the move again. Yesterday I got in a store of dressings, etc. ready for the move and we marched out for Villiers-Bretonneux about 12.30 after an early dinner. The road was fearfully dusty owing to the great traffic and the day was hot so the march with our packs was tiring. About 3 miles from our destination we halted for an hour and had tea, then by lorry continued our journey, our camp being on the left of the village. It was good to see the activity especially of the railway, trains being used well up to the front.
We saw a large number of the captured guns being taken out with the battalion number being chalked on them which was responsible for the capture of each. We also saw a hun staff car being used which had the German eagle painted on it. We pitched camp in an orchard and dug in, I being fortunate in finding a dugout already prepared. The advance has continued, the French having taken Montdidier, the number of prisoners now being 24,000 with about 500 guns.
