Saturday September 6 1919
No. 19 Camp
Kinmel Park
Rhyl
After a long and tiring journey I have arrived in England with the Battery. We came home via Duren, Aachen, Lille, Armentieres, Calais, Dover, Rochester, London, Birmingham, Crewe, Rhyl.

There are two divisions here, and the camp is large and crowded. It took us five days to get here.

D/76th (Army) Brigade R.F.A.
Kinmel Park Camp

I am expecting to leave here on Friday or Saturday. It has been a bit of a struggle to account for everything and demobilize the men, but it is nearly over now. The camp is very empty, and the remnant departs on Friday. It is sad as the Brigade has been an excellent one with many excellent fellows in it. This is the third unit I have broken up, and the best.

There are no further entries in the War Diary.
