“Next day we were on the move again – a  2½ hours’ march to Sarton – another respectable village, where I got a good billet. On again in terrific heat from a scorching sun to Doullens. This was a cruel march for the men in full war kit – steel  helmets, etc, and many fell out en route, suffering from sun-stroke, fatigue and sore feet. I had a most hectic time getting lifts for them in passing ambulances, lorries and French carts.”
