March 26, 1943

Moved off in convoy with Tanks at 8 a.m. Passed through Arundel, Chichester, Emsworth, Havant, outskirts of Portsmouth, Fareham, Southampton, Totton, Cadnam, through the New Forest to Godshill, and we are parked in this Village green outside the “Fighting Cocks Inn.” My bed is made up against a little hall, and at my feet is a stone which reads “This stone was laid by the Honorable Lady Hulse – Aug. 8th, 1924.” Have just succeeded in buying a 1 1/2 dozen eggs – Bruce Trotter is donating a can of sausages – so we will eat. Had a wonderful meal and to bed.
