[Tuesday 15 August 1916]

Dr Fay Maclure of Hay is a M.O. in this Hospital had a yarn with him today. Heard today I shall be sent to England to finish my "cure" so as you get this I shall be on the sea. I have had a Mauser bullet, a bomb & a Shrapnel shell. I have yet to be torpedoed. We have some bad cases in here- Poor old Major Shanahan had his leg taken off- "there goes a good rider" he said.
My kit Mufti was sent from Cooks today I got a couple of [indecipherable] when to open it. The Military authorities had been through everything & of course had not repacked decently they no doubt expected to find BOMBS etc & even shrapnel.
