Went Intermediate Base & [indecipherable] BK today , find ½ a day is as much as I can stand just yet. Am trying to get sent to El Hoyat Convalescent Hospital at Helonan. A big Hotel built by Belgian Syndicate for "Tourists", about 20 miles from Cairo.
Already about 700 men & 30 officers are there mending It is at Heloman the Sulphur Baths are, you may remember me mentioning them when Bivouaced at Helonan months ago.
What a lot of good men have been killed since then.
