“Up at 5 o’clock next day, and a big sick-parade to attend to, – no wonder, after the Ypres experience. I arranged to have the packs of several of these men carried on a wagon. We left Arcques at 8 a.m. for Morbly – three miles from Aire. It was a long and tiring march, the day being hot and sunny. At Morbly the engineers were billeted in small farms and I had a room in a small cottage. The surrounding country was very pretty, wooded and the gardens were full of fruit and vegetables.”
