Wednesday. Today we left PICQUINY at 9.0 A.M. and we marched to a place called [word missing]   where we got into billets of sorts. We officers are all in an old empty house. We only marched about twelve miles so it was not a long day. I chopped some logs until teatime & the fire is going fine. Rigby, Dodge & about five more were distinctly merry by 11.0 p.m. & we had a bit of fun at 1.0 A.M. when Rigby woke us all up to tell us the time & to tell us he was “Queen of the May”.
