[Wednesday 17 May 1916]

Signaller shot today Scattered Turks all around- 120 ° in the shade 1 gallon Water per man-
160 Camels arrived to take us on
No more roads
No more Railway
No more Pipe Line
Only wells & brackish water
60 men Sunstroke
20 more sick
survival of the fittest now, I prefer the heat but I like water. The unfit will go to the Wall out here- 2 Camels & 3 horses died -coming out
