Crépy, Aisne. A rest day for the 1st Battalion, South Wales Borderers. 8394 Pte. John Waddie Wishart is able to get a wash, air his clothes and possibly have a lie down in one of the barns in the local area. At 11 p.m. orders are received that the retirement is to continue which is recorded as ‘sickening news.’ Another very hot day with some of the men making improvised sun shades from the bottom part of a leg of trousers sewn into the rim of a cap. 56591 Gnr. George Greig Wishart, 56th Battery, Royal Field Artillery, remains in Servais.
