The whole Company went on a route march and the usual collection of the sick was undertaken.

Arrangements had been made for the Field Cashier to be at Brigade Headquarters by 10am. Captain Anderson of this unit attended at Headquarters at this hour to draw money for the Unit, and after waiting an hour a telephone message come through saying that the Cashier would not be able to come and that Captain Anderson should proceed to Divisional Headquarters at Roquetoire for the money. On arrival there found that the Field Cashier had no money left. The Field Cashier then advised Captain Anderson and other Officers requiring money to proceed to Mereville a distance of 25 kilometres for the money – this was done and the money obtained by 6pm.
