30 June 1918 Sunday (X to X crossed out)
X Still wondering what cable means & if Joe has really sailed I shall be sorry if he has for your sake little Mother & how is the Home to go on? & why address to KHAN YUNUS? X
We go back tonight. I'll miss my Red X stretcher, it is part of Trench Stores, covered with the dark stains of different poor boys blood running down to the stitched eyelet holes at each end, put in to drain.
Anyway it kept me off the ground & let the snakes go underneath- I'll miss it.
Reached Camp at midnight & the men had a big tail on them marching back per boot-
