Saturday 10th (1918)

Auxi-le-Chateau, is situated some miles beyond Doullens.  I got a box seat and enjoyed the drive of 10 or 12 miles through exceedingly pretty country.  This is a large hospital controlled by a British unit.  Its situation seems very pleasant and peaceful.  We have been given pyjamas.  Several nurses are to be seen moving about amongst the tents.  Here’s the infernal orderly with more castor oil – they pour it into you at every stage.  Ugh!
