On the night of the 18th /19th the front was handed over to the 5th & 7th Brigades in preparation for the attack, and after being relieved by the 19th & 25th Battalions the 22nd Battalion moved back by platoons to Halifax Area. Hot coffee and rum were then provided followed by a rendezvous with a convoy of motor buses that enabled the Battalion to make a speedy journey to Winnipeg Camp.
