Sunday [Auchel]

Moved to Oshell [Auchel]. Very much upside down. Got dinner here. Still in cookhouse. Bright & warm.

    That map won’t have done him much good! 🙂

    And I can understand the spelling he used for Oshell. Probably hadn’t seen a map, nor even a sign for the town.

    • Yes, the map was a bit of surprise when I got to that page. Equally useless one coming next week.

      “Oshell” led me on a bit of a chase across Google Maps trying to figure out what he meant!
