I paid a visit to General Gort who received me in the Chateau d'Habarcq; he assigned me a car for transportation and an officer to accompany me. It happened that this officer, Captain Grant, was an old friend from peace time and had been the English publisher of my little Voltaire. Grant was an old cavalry officer, but his regiment had been motorized and he himself had been classified as: 'Non-motorizable cavalryman,' which made him very proud.

Before long Colonel Gillot was retired and left us. His successor, General Hemelot, a married man, lived with his family, and `the Capucins' were reduced to three, but they kept open house.
