[Sunday 20 February 1916]

I frequently knock 2 men riding on 1 donkey I mean natives, They have worked it out to a fine art how much work can be got out of how little feed, very cruel. "Starlings" are plentiful & I saw an Arab child, with one tied by the leg on a piece of string, as a TOY they are a cruel race- TOY lasted 3 days
Now camped at Shusha on edge of Desert near Samalut.
Pneumonia Plague is at this village & many deaths- so we hope to move soon We are collecting Rifles like in Africa, & the Mamoor has lent me an old Blunderbuss of shot gun & 10 cartridges- so when 5 or 6 Pigeons get a line I pull- not sport but Tucker
