August 28thMusketry on Ranges – Wherever a standing camp is made targets are set up to keep the men's eyes in & to exercise the new drafts of reinforcements, which come along from the Base. Some are Bushmen & some are not. Forty cases of Comforts from Australian C. Fund for the Regiment arrived last night – Tinned Fruit Sauces, Pickles etc some excellent khake shirts for the men – Not the least valuable are the cases for firewood which is always a scarce commodity in these parts –29thPersonal30thLeave party back from Port Said. The men were very full up of things going down, they enjoyed their spell As one of them said "The sight of a pretty girl driving in a Gharry was worth their trip". Innoculated again for Para Typhoid Cholera etc – I forgot how many times this is. Thanks for Grazier with Ralph Anderson & Jack Ellis notices- but sooner go out in a fight than by disease – This is a healthy spot facing my Bivy. I can see trawlers sweeping mines off Gaza – I am only 100 yards from the sea
