The 103rd Infantry continued its journey to France, leaving Bordon, England by train for Southampton, where the men crossed the English Channel and finally landed at Le Havre. They briefly billeted at Camp Hadsfield before continuing on to Neufchateau in the Vosges region of northeastern France. Following are notes from Sam’s Pocket Diary:

“This company… Left Camp Bordon at 9.20 on Oct 20, arrived in Southampton at 1 pm same day… Left Southampton at 4.30 same day. PM marched in river until 4.15 pm Oct 21 and then got underway for France. Arrived at Havre France at 3 am Oct 22, disembarked at 3 pm and hiked to Camp Hudsfield…”
