Sat. 15th. Last night the 2nd L.H. made a charge on the Turkish trench, but were mowed down by machine guns. Out of 100 that charged only 45 got back again. This morning I went for water & decided to look up Morgan Welch. I had a 3 or 4 mile walk but found him quite well. It is a rather dangerous job walking down the valley, as we have to pass places in sight of the Turks & 3 men of the 3rd L.H. were hit by a machine gun, just before I passed. B Sqd. signallers went on duty on the telephone at midday. Lance Cpl. Crisp of B Sqd. succeeded in bringing one of the wounded lads into the trench & has been recommended for the D.C.M. About 4 oclock a sniper succeeded in wounding Sergeant Lovett through the leg
