[Tuesday 22 August 1916]

Getting on well.
Last night the pet donkey strolled up to the bedside of a Flying man & kissed him  €“He gave such a yell it startled the whole ward.
Ere this you will have casualty lists- I see the [indecipherable] Division from France has lost heavily.
Military authorities have searched all Kits at Thos Cooks & Sons, so the four shells etc I had have gone - pretty rotten while a man is on the Desert to go thro' his Kit.
Sisters have put the Donkey in a bed, with a bandage & thermometer in mouth poor little thing is not bigger than a dog.
