11 February 1918 Monday
We are in Reserve the weather cleared with a terrific thunderstorm-
Out all day with Capt McLean surveying well known towns & districts like Lud once Lydda, Ramleh, etc.
Afternoon held long postponed Sports
as I have 2 boils under one arm & one under the other. I was only an administrator. The Rain washed away railway in the WADIS so no letter from the little wife for several days- From where we were working SNOW plainly visible on the hills towards SAMARIA Crusaders Towers are good landmarks in our surveying work- which was originally done by HH KITCHENER 1878
