Attended Conference with Brigadiers and General at 8.30 AM. He informed us we were to be ready to move to France at end of May. Balance of personnel and vehicles came into camp to day. Hope by the end of week to have everything in good working order. All leave after next Sunday stopped. Lt. Richards arrived from England. He brought me some books I had ordered. He looks very well and I am exceedingly glad to get him back. Quite a number of men from Bridging train transferred to us to day. Promoted full Colonel, and Temp. Brig. General.
