[Monday 28 August 1916]

Off Malta Sister Calvert knows Bob MacFarland's sister is among the Nursing Staff on board, we had a great yarn about old Hay. & the folk there.
War news is published daily all's well Im horribly weak intended to walk about & get fit, but find the stairs enough. Time will fix me up- but I'm bandaged so tight I can hardly breath in the rotten foul air below
Usual routine, Boat drill Dressings, Sleep, game of bridge, etc.
Can only find 2 Australian Soldiers & 1 new Zealander on board, they were glad to find someone who spoke "the Colonial twang" & looked like a Convict, with close cropped HAIR
