March 5 & 6, 1943

March 5: I traveled most of the night in a Bren Carrier driven by Scotty Bachelier. It is warm today. Tonight we are all packed up and ready to move off; but wait all night. Nearly freeze to death.

March 6: Move off at 2 p.m., go to Newbury then east and north to Ashamptead Common. A very lovely wood about eight miles west of Reading. Arrive here after night – make our beds down and have a grand sleep.
