Posted Diary yesterday & P.C. from the trenches – Court Martial over –
The Artillery here have painted their guns primary colors Blue Red Yellow supposed to make more invisible – No rain for months, in this climate – most of the Houses are roofed with wood like weather boards. Norman Belcher from Geelong once from [indecipherable] camped here last night he had been to Gallipoli & gave us news.
Went Cairo on a Signalers Motor Byke 3 speed Hudson I wish I could drive a "car" every man should learn how. I could do such a lot of my work if did not always want a chauffer.
