[Friday 11 August 1916]
Lot of men have been in to see me Bushies mostly -Sisters at very top here same Routine & Tucker as in No 1- This hospital was at Lemnos & the Sisters all experienced. They cursed the L.H. keeping them in Egypt- till this scrap came- now they are happy- got something to do.
These are the DINKUM sisters. No 3 General was the Hospital at Lemnos in all the mud etc & no conveniences.
Some more 1st LH Officers came in last night. Knocked out by Camel ride after being wounded its hell in those Casolets.
Poor Lt Ronny Macdonald killed yesterday 8 officers out of 1st LH. [indecipherable]
