Day spent in rest. Marched from Heucourt at 8.30pm to Boygainville arriving about 2.00am. Owing to experiences of other warfare, men were kept down to a shadow. There were a few exceptions, but only in the cases of the Field Officers, to whom deserved privileges were extended. On arrival at Bougainville it was discovered that someone had made accommodations, but the end result was that there were no billets and we were foolishly told by them that we “really were not expected”. The Colonel and Lieutenants worked hard and as a result good shelter was obtained.
