[Sunday 24 December 1916]
Xmas eve & our job is to help clean up the Battlefield collect rifles & ammunition Bury the dead, succour the wounded & burn what we cannot take away- Any amount of loot- Oil engine pumps ordnance.
Two Armenian Doctors help our own-
We go back to El Arish today-
This fight about finishes the Turks in SINIA for some time anyway-
I just got back in time to help capture the guns that wounded our men in August.
3rd night without a Blanket freezing cold but all hands cheerful at result of Battle.
