Stan & I both received 7 letters last night. Stan paraded sick as his ankles is weak & has been put on light duties; We were signalling close to camp this morning & this afternoon was sent out to the Tram Station & were signalling back to Head Quarters; Yule & I went into Heliopolis to post some letters & had a fairly decent feed for 6 piastres each. we were paid this afternoon £ 1.8.0 & was very acceptable as I have been stony for the last day or so. I also bought a pipe to night.
