23 June 1918 Sunday
Killed one short thick snake with Black head one 4 ft grey fellow with spots- don't know any names but like 'em better dead We are too scattered for any Church Parades, & Jacko keeps us apart, grey heat haze all down the Valley & shells bursting in it show red- The pudding-faced Germans with Turks won't like this heat I know- "Backblockers" stand it better & the nights are fairly cool- Flies start at dawn, the mosquitoes take over duty at Sundown- Re Stand to Arms at 0320 which is 20 past 3 A.M. long days.
