Turned into stables early to get the horses ready for Major General Perrire to see at two fifteen p.m. It commenced raining before stables and by midday was coming down very heavily. Pinto arrived late and gazed on the horses as they filed past him on the road. It was really a waste of time as he knew nothing about them, though said he thought them looking well. Siggers in the morning had gone up with Hossack to look at the gun position and they never got back till late in the evening. I discovered at the last moment that I would have to go by the leave train as civilian trains from Abbeville were not allowed. I did not really mind as lorry jumping to Amiens is always a lottery.
