Sat. 22nd. I believe the Turkish Field Marshall was at the beach yesterday having a consultation with Sir Ian Hamilton. Rain commenced to fall soon after sunrise this morning. We tied two waterproof sheets over our dug-out & managed to keep dry: a lovely afternoon although clouds are still hanging about. Sergeant Paul was sniped to-day while in his dug-out, it is said he is dying & was shot through the head; practically no fighting to-day although the Turks have been busy all the afternoon with shrapnel on the beach. We are getting very good food here & plenty of it, quite a change from Heliopolis. To-day is the first that our aeroplace [aeroplane?] has not been seen or heard by us since we arrived here. The weather here has been perfect & we are having a good holiday with just enough danger to make it interesting.
