Sun. 23rd. Some Japanese arrived here a few days ago with bombs equal to a 6 inch shell, also a gun capable of firing them 450 yds. & they have been giving the Turks particular fits with them. No fighting to-day, only a few shells & an occasional bomb & a few rifle & machine gun shots to remind us there is a war on. A mail arrived to-day & I volunteered with others to go down to the beach to get it, & it was hard work lumping it up. Were issued with fresh beef to-day. While I was cooking the breakfast this morning a spent bullet fell into the Quart Pot & I received a hot shower in consequence; had a shave & a wet towel bath this afternoon.
