Extract from the diary of Capt Ferguson, 1st Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment 

We marched on today, passing through the town of VlCENZA, and taking the VERONA road … (illegible) until we arrived at a small railway station. Billets for officers were bad, but a rest camp was made, for the troops out of Italian bivouac sheets. The officers got the option of these or an empty room, and we chose the room. Our trains were due to leave at 9 am & noon tomorrow, so we got permission from the CO to go into VICENZA for dinner.  I started out with Sparling and Forsyth, and had a right merry evening, and an excellent dinner at the big hotel, and Halsey joined us; we also met Mills, Horsley, Daniels, Molyneux, others
