Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 20 - October 5th

Saturday Oct 5th found us up and doing at 6am. After breakfast we packed up & marched to the light railway & boarded the train, which took us to Perronne, where we entrained & travelled to a place called Airaines where we detrained & marched to a small village called Vergies. After arriving at about 8pm we were taken to our billets & settled in for the night. The march out was a bit rough, as we had full packs & had to play all the way.

Thursday Oct 5th bright and sunny from the start.
