Head Quarters. Major Granville went to the Canteen on the beach & bought some pickles, sauce, milk & oatmeal. As there was not enough for all of us we had to "sell a horse" to see who would get them, the signallers luck was out & we got nothing at all but Les Smithers was the only man in the Sqd. who possessed a plug of tobacco & he gave it to Sergeant Mack for a quart of oatmeal, so we had porridge for breakfast this morning.

The Turks have been dropping shells on the hill opposite very constantly all the afternoon. Butter & Bourke have been told of to practice bomb throwing.
