Left Pernois by lorry at 5 p.m. and reached the Bn. at St. Vaast about 6.30 p.m. where I was cordially greeted by old faces. Was posted to A Coy. with 2nd Lieut Dodimead. I found that Arthur Wheen had been promoted from Cpl. to Commissioned rank with a second bar to his Military Medal, and that he had been appointed Signal officer. So that I have a very worthy successor. I am in charge of No. 4 Platoon now.
We did a little Coy. training this morning. This afternoon all four of us A Coy. officers went into Vignacourt
