22 January 1918

Just a hurried line before turning in for the night to say that we had a good crossing and arrived safely.   Brooke turned up all right – I found on enquiring that B.s Pullman seats were of the 7.50 so transferred my luggage and my allegiance to the later train.  Morning had to be spent in Folkestone wandering round and trying to pass the time until the boat started.  Roberts of the 6th Btn was also with us – One of the crowd of “XVIII” officers with me in the famous Calais days.   Woolly turned up all right here and we have just had dinner together incidentally an extraordinarily good dinner and much better than anything obtainable in England.   Tomorrow we start at an appalling hour – to wit 5.30 AM.  so have to arrange to be called at “Cock-crow-40 mins.”  I hope we manage to get some breakfast all right.
