April 22 – We still receive the unadorned dry biscuit – the same way of eating them – eat the corners off first & then eat them square again – this continues till the biscuit is no more – some are very good, they are wholemeal – Expect to move tomorrow night. Dearth of bread on board – one boat from Lemnos came alongside loaded with bread & sold out in an hour at 6d. per small loaf – "D" Coy on guard – me being Sick Parade Corporal. I escaped. Our "pugs" are now selecting meal times as best time to settle arguments with bare fists. Bully Beef & bacon now the favorite dish.
