Sun 12th
Practically the whole of the Regt still go out on fatigue work every night & the troops are having a rough time in consequence, a good many are going away sick, 6 went yesterday; Today has been quite chilly & a little rainy looking. Church Service was held here at 3 olock this afternoon by Col Merrington (our Chaplain) I was too busy writing to attend Received an Australian Mail to-day for a wonder Stan got 9 letters, & I received 2 from Jessie & 2 from home. Stan & Les still do 4 hrs on the phone & 8 hours off & although Nelson is on duty again I have not been called on to do any work so far & quite enjoying my holiday. It is 4 Calender months to-day since we arrived on the Peninsula. Very heavy bombardment towards Achi-Baba.
