Wed. 7th. Had no signalling this morning & at dinner time to-day A Sqd. signallers had to go on duty at Popes Post with B Sq. Sig's. After dinner we were practising signalling in the gully; a good deal of shrapnel was being thrown about this afternoon & as it was falling rather handy to us we knocked off early. We went for a swim just before sundown & coming back passed several wounded men being carried to the beach wounded, they were wounded on Steels Post which was shelleded rather heavily just at dusk.

Thur. 8th. Scotty Hamilton had a fight with McDonald in their dug-out, stopped by McMillan (a draw). Another row eventuated between Cork & Cooper, Cork hit Cooper on the head with a tin of "bully" making a nasty cut, Cork placed under arrest. Everything else the same as yesterday even to the swim & the usual sundown shelling
