Saturday 24th April 1915

Barn. Orders come through to move off at 11.15 am. Wash and shave and have a jolly breakfast in the farm field. Entrain 1 pm in horse boxes, pas trainloads of refugees coming from Ypres and Poperinghe. Detrain at Poperinghe, march out to a large farm to bivouac, and have our tea but, owing to the rain which keeps on all night, are billeted in a farmhouse close by.
