News from Ham

The weather has finally turned; from
The most appalling freezing fog and a bitter North wind which lasted three days and chilled to the core, I am now sweltering in 35 degrees of heat (100 fahrenheit approx). The fog, the battlefields and the cemeteries all added to a sense of deep gloom but now well on the way to Laon and then Reims by Monday. Today i set off for Tergnier and then a long haul to Laon of 25 miles tomorrow which will be up hill and down dale and a lot through the Forest of Saint Gobain.... In the shade I hope!
