L'Estagne – 43 minutes in the tram from Marseille on the seafront (opposite side of the harbour to which we are). Passed British, Indian & Russian camps on the way. There are quite a number of pretty tram trips round Marseille taking from ½ to 1 hour.
Have again received orders to pack up our stores and this time it looks as if things are in earnest. A start will be made to-morrow with reveille at 5.30 a.m. daily.
A course of instruction in Army medical work had just been started by acting O.C. (Lieut. Col. Dick[?]) with 2 lectures a day, but on account of the extra work involved in packing equipment, it has had to be discontinued.
50 more of the nurses leave tonight for the north, 10 each to St. Omer,
