St Omer. Entrain for Berguette, lines of communication. All day to ourselves, guard mounted 7 pm to 7 am at R.E. yard. Dinner at an estaminet. Walk along the canal in the afternoon. Tea at Isbergues. Guard.
Bn. War Diary: There is no mention of the battalion moving to Berguette or Isbergues. Entries continue to report activities as being at St Omer, and are not the same as Hob’s personal diary. The distance between St Omer and Isbergues is 15 miles. There is a reference to ‘lines of communication’
