1917 – 2nd Bn OXF & BUCKS LI –TERDEGHEM – LE NOUVEAU MONDE.
Thence the Regiment marched at 9.30am to LE NOUVEAU MONDE on the CASSEL – WORMHODT ROAD.
The Regiment now embarked upon a stay of one week in the LE NOUVEAU MONDE area, companies being distributed in the barns of farm houses in an area of 21/4 by 1/1/4 miles, everything being very scattered: Regimental Headquarters were established in LE KAEPER FME just off and east of the CASSEL – WORMHOUDT Road.
But for the weather and that the Regiment lived in daily expectation of moving this stay would have been not unpleasant.
