We slept in the fields, just anchored down

for an hour or so, and then moved again.

Our food was dished up from rat ion carts

which we ate on the march. Bully beef was

issued in seven‘pound t ins .

that weight so we used t o open our t ins and share

it out. That was our rat ion, bully beef,

biscuits and water:

seven‘pound t ins!
