Wednesday June 5th
On parade 6 a.m. not feeling too good, went to Dr. who gave me some tablets and sent me to bed (temp. 100°) but I didn't go. I got paid 55 frcs. After dinner Ron Powell & I walked into Pont Remy and spent the afternoon there. After we had had some tea we went to a concert given by the 4th Divisional concert party, and it was a really fine show. Arrived back in camp 8.30pm and went to bed tired out.

Up at 5.30 a.m. Went to Dr. again and got some more tablets and was again told to rest. (Got a touch of fever.) Feel very groggy. Went for a walk through the woods and lay down under a tree and went to sleep. After tea watched the "try out" races between the 41st battery horses and donks. There were some very good finishes.
