a dozen times. Were warned of the escape of german prisoners, we encountered what we believe were same disguised, later we armed ourselves with a rifle & bombs (mills) to lessen any risk that there might be.
Got leave of absence & proceeded to Becordel with Bill Roach, passed thro death valley, sausage gully, casualty corner & the other old place where hell reigned on earth.
Polling day on active service, great interest shown by most of the boys.
Sunday afternoon off uneventful till its close.
