Oct 13 - Spent most of the day tearing down parts of the new camp and loading the material on the narrow gauge trucks. At 7 p.m. we had finished the job and so the Coy boarded the train and we left over our new line for Bapaume. On arrival there we had the material to handle again and load on to standard gauge cars for our journey north. This we had completed by about 1 a.m. and after receiving a good ration of rum. We went to sleep in the box cars.
