Item 02: Leslie William Sutherland diary, 1 January-13 December 1916 - Page 30
February 24, 1916 Thursday
Revielle as usual
Horses exercised & I went for a ride round the town then out to Tuckel-keel about 16 miles out along the main canal the boys are having a good time there for they get heaps to eat from the Omdah & plenty of swimming.
The planes are still very busy & three was up today all day they go about 200 miles out on the desert & reconnoitre one went out late last night & camped in the desert so as he could watch the enemy early this morning.
Our telephone system has been altogether changed & we now use the Markas & General Exchange both for our communications.
Turned in at 9 tonight.
