New Zealand Engineers, Middle East
After ten days of intermittent rain, the ground on the front of 1 Cdn Corps is such that great difficulty is experienced in moving fwd vehs of any kind. Ground on which the going is more suitable lies to the SOUTH of the rly line and along HIGHWAY 9. 1 Cdn Corps is to take over from 5 Corps that portion of the front at present occupied by 56 Div. The op. from that pt. will develop so that the main thrust of 1 Cdn Corps will be along HIGHWAY 9 towards BOLOGNA.
