Still Flat

Thursday 24th January 1918

The 1st Battalion has been marching today to Paese, a small town west of Treviso. The adjutant mentioned in his wire that the countryside is still as flat as Flanders.

The adjutant of the 8th Battalion, at Lebucquière, east of Bapaume spoke to me on the blower this evening. There has been a commanding officers conference as regards the defence scheme for the area. Company commanders had a parade for training from 9 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Nine officers and four hundred other ranks are still being found for work burying signals cables.
