June 4: 4 pm received orders to go on a sniping course. I was to find a motor bus at entrance to village 4 miles away. I got to the village on a bicycle and found at least 5 entrances. I telephoned Bde for further & better particulars of entrance referred. Reply came crossroads in centre of village. This was an entrance I had not thought of but of course should have done.
6pm. Arrived on bus of Bde HQ of __ Bde in village of LUCHEAUX. Had tea with Genl & proceeded to billets.
It is a very nice little French watering place with splendid woods round. Trout fishing is popular here.
