[Wednesday 15 March 1916]

I find the cartridges are all rejects of Clay Bros, all Brands & Powders. Egyptian Storekeepers are Robbers- I had to get a Permit from the Consul to buy them-
Today I shot
10 Jack Snipe
1 Duck
3 Plover
3 Big Brown Doves
5 Quail
& nearly drownded a young native getting the Duck. Wish I had my good gun this "made in Germany" is only Goopipe & very old & very cheap.
Just heard the news re ROUMANIA joining in  €“ Good luck to her We will all be home by Xmas- you see
