Saturday 29th August: Bassoles-Aulers
After a few hours’ sleep under a tree we were up and had breakfast. We then had a letter from General French* read out to us thanking everybody for the way they had done their duty. He also told in the letter about the Great Charge by the Scotch Greys and 12th Lancers the day before. They charged the enemy cavalry three times. That was where the 5 of us were sent back for Captain Wilson.
