Stable work and washing wagons for an inspection on the 6th inst.
1pm had a trip to our new HQ at Proyart with stores for an airline. We are taking over this portion of the like from a French Div. It was bitter cold and I was like ice the whole journey.
Usual stable work. Nothing else to mention.
Stable work, harness cleaning and oiling wagons for inspection tomorrow.
Paraded and moved off at 11.25am with two cable detachments and marched through Ribemont and Bairyeux, Franvillers, back by Amiens-Albert road arriving stables at 2.45pm.
Left at 9.15am with four wagons of stores for Merricourt-sur-Somme. Arrived there without incident at 12.45pm. Unloaded watered and fed horses then had something to eat, leaving at 2.24pm for home. My horse cast a shoe about 3mls from the billets. I had to walk the rest. We got back at 5.30pm.
Usual stables all day. 6pm I got orders to proceed with two cable dethts at 10 o’clock next day, to Proyart started to thaw.
Got all parked and moved off 10am. Lt. Dawson i/c. We went via Buire, Treux, Morlancourt where the officer lost his way. We went through Failles Wood and Bray Wood and one time we were 4km from Albert. We got to Proyard at 5.30pm instead of 2pm. Horses were done for the want of water and feeding. We got fixed up and sat down to tea at 6.30. Enemy planes dropped 36 bombs during night.
I was busy all day carting stores up from DADOS at La Flaque. Enemy again dropped bombs during night, a dozen this time.
Usual stable duties nothing special today. Had a feed of home fed bacon for tea.
Remainder of Div. HQ came up today. Still thawing. SM at Div. HQ so I am left i/c of horse lines.
