Sun 30th
Watkins managed to crawl back from the Turkish lines after dark tonight & was found by the 6th L.H. Regt. this morning & brought into hospital. reports from the Field Anb. state that Barrows wound is not as bad as we feared & all who were wounded yesterday will probably live; We had no enemy planes over today;

This morning at 4 oclock we had to supply 2 signal stations for Mount Meredith & Mt Royston I sent Leask & Watson, & Edwards & Cabban, a section of men had to go with each station as guard. Life is much better here now as we get from midnight till 6 oclock after coming off a 'stunt' instead of standing to Arms at 3 oclock, if the Stand to Arms had not been cut out the men would not have been able to stand it.
