March 5 1919
It is dull here now. We are overhauling equipment and handing it in for storage. All the horses have gone with the exception of a charger for me and the mess cart horse, and a large number of the men.
I went into Amiens the other day, and to day I go to Abbeville on duty.
The Brigade sign is a dolphin, which the Colonel calls the “flying slug”.
Prices of everything seems to be very high. My Captain who has just come back from Paris says that it is expensive there. Amiens, Doullens and Abbeville are bad enough.
