No. 14 A.G.H. Here I am same old place as landed in this time last year, don't worry as only means a spell.
Before leaving Brigade Head Quarters I saw a good spider fight – Great big TARANTULA much bigger & fiercer than the Australian sort. Are put in a TIN WASH TUB & in 7 minutes one or the other is Killed. The 6th Reg. beat B.H.Q. but ours is undefeated now. He can eat a cricket at a sitting – the prize is a case of Beer.
