Wednesday 28 March 1917

The fight is going well & Regiment + 16 Officers are told off to escort prisoners to Cairo . We lost an aeroplane & both men killed this morning. All is well & the weather lovely at present.

Every afternoon we have football matches RUGBY – a game I never played being at school in Victoria it is making the men very fit & well. Looking back at the Military School it did us all good & served to shake together the Australian & English Officers, who are always inclined to view each other from afar off & to criticize each other.
