Nov. 16, 1943
Went forward to Sapino again and held sick parade. Then called in at St. Gelliano and picked up a patient to bring to hospital. On reaching the main road, a red cap handed me a paper containing my orders to move my section at once to a spot between Vinchiaturo and Campobasso – and join the 11th Reg. – the Ontarios. Tonight we will proceed north west to the Adriatic Coast. I believe our dispersal area is at Termoli, directly opposite Rome. It will probably be a pretty rough trip. Left Jelsi at 2 p.m. and proceeded to Vinchiaturo then up the Campobasso road until about four miles from Campobasso, where we joined the Ontario’s. I had a very nice reception from the Officers. Many of whom I had known for a long time. Found two big rooms in a house and we bedded down. We were joined by our second ambulance and our Sgt. who had been away attending a court martial. Terribly wet and cold day.
