Diary

June 1
Left camp at 7.00am enroute to England on 14 days leave. Walked to Conchil-le-Temple Station to get 7.52 train. Train late & did not arrive till about 10.30. Arrived Etaples about noon but could not get across bridge as Fritz had bombed it the night before. They finally got it fixed and we arrived at Boulogne at about 4.00pm. We were marched to rest billet in town and for a small tip the guard let us out to see the town. Am now sitting up on a high hill watching the sea.
