Tuesday 16th November 1915

From Godewaresvelde by motor bus to Steenwoorde and then on to billets at Ryveld arriving at 5.30 am. Stick in all the morning, lecture in afternoon. Go and see Millar in evening.

At the end of his second leave, Hob returned to his battalion at Ryveld and, a week later, they crossed the Belgian border to new billets at Poperinghe. Six days later they were back in the trenches again, but this time on fatigue work, and they returned to their billets at Poperinghe on 6th December after only seven days. They have a further nine days ‘rest and recreation’, and then return to the same trenches as before, but this time into the front line.
