Sunday 19 January 1919
Went Beersheba to see the graves of our men & get crosses erected – it was interesting seeing all the Shellal country again. I noticed the mosaic was reproduced in the Australasian lately.
A man named Miller from Mathoura came into my Tent & wanted to know how to become a "Stock Inspector"!! He said he knew Joe & had been a drover!!
There are 20 1st L.H. buried in cemetery among young Gum Trees & 4 miles out among 38 of the 4th & 12th & where my old Sergeant Major lies Paddy Lenehan.
