17 June 1918 Monday
Supposed to be relieved in 2 more days- one cannot get exercise in the Trenches- Among reptiles around us is a lizard that makes a noise like a Cabby driving his horses or a Bird, I thought it the latter for a long time- great collection of immense Scorpions Tarantulas etc:- All hands fit & well so far; one man shot a hare another a snake- Jacko is busy wiring his side & so the days pass- We stand to arms at 0320 or in Australian language 20 minutes past 3 in the morning, it is light then the days are long & hot but nights fairly sleepable.
