Tuesday. May 14th. Detrained at Uln at 5. am on border of Wurtemberg and Bavaria, leaving our belongings in the carriage. Marched through Uln a fair sized town, with a most beautiful cathedral. The intricacy of the sort of skeleton work on the outside of the building was simply marvellous. Marched about 2 miles to the next station, and there found a German officers resthouse and restaurant by the railway. Knocked up the girls in charge, who made us coffee with sugar, with which we had some gorgeous tinned ham, and black bread (officers). Had to hurry our meal somewhat, and rush, running, jumping, scrambling across rails and over trains and trucks to our train which had come up to the local station.
Midday. Had lunch at Augsberg. Fish and sourkrout, which I did not care for, potatoes, followed by hot, sweet white bread (sort of lard cake) with apple sauce. Very bon. We, of course, paid for these meals from our credits with the officer.
(Here I should say that Flying Corps officers seem to get considerably better treatment than infantry officers. Whether because they usually are sent about in small and convenient parties, or because of the ‘good feeling’ which certainly exists between the two flying services, I don’t at present know. At the same we are subject to much more stringent searchings and cross-examinations)
Evening. Arrived at Landshut, on Isar in Bavaria. Met by an interpreter. Marched in the pouring rain (when I had considerable wind-up on account of my papier-maché suit cases, and the biscuits therein) to our new camp, which proved to be on a hill overlooking Landshut. It was nearly dark when we arrived; we passed through a very old castle, and into a room which had been a stable, and into which a number of rough beds had been put. We had a blanket each, several biscuits and jam.
