" A bivouac area was picked on the outskirts of ORLEANS. Following morning Sept. 1st column proceeded through ORLEANS, and CHATAMEUF (Châteauneuf Sur Loire ?) to a bivouac area in the vicinity of LEO BORDES (Les Bordes ?). Platoon remained here until Sept. 3rd when Rcn. Co. moved to a new area at a fork in the highway to Glen (Gien ?) and BRIARE. Platoon remained with RCN Co in this area until Sept. 6th when they were given the mission of outposting the town of TOUCY and patrolling and gaining information from FFI and other American patrols and CPs in the surrounding area. Platoon arrived in TOUCY and set up two outposts, 1st section on one road, 2nd section on another road. Each day a vehicle and crew were sent up to AUXERRE where information was available from FFI sources. Trips were also made from TOUCY to AUXERRE to JOICNY; contact was made with the 35 DIV. 1st platoon sent numerous messages and overlays from TOUCY regarding enemy information. Early in the morning Sept. 10 platoon was alerted and moved from TOUCY through ST. FARGEAU, LAVAU and BONNY, here the platoon headed south through NEUVY MAYENNES and COSNE. It was at COSNE that no contact was made with any friendly troops and the platoon went back over the same route to BONNY, where they continued to BRIERE and to Rcn. Co. bivouac area, after first stopped in GIEN for a shower. Sept. 12 Rcn. Co. moved from the area, north to MONTARGIS and then east through COURTENAY, SENS and TROYS. A short ways east of TROYES a bivouac area was picked. Sept. 14 platoon was given the mission of going to TANLEY, establishing an outpost, and continue patrols and contacting friendly patrols the same as they had done at TOUCEY. "
