Friday 27 April 1917

We are camped in a rugged water worn WADI but no water.
Hear that a mail is in Camp.
[The following paragraph crossed through.] My substantive Rank of MAJOR came through in Orders so am Temporary no longer & if go sick or wounded I do not revert. Don't know when I'll post this.
