Our horses are a bit shin sore coming off the Sandy Desert into this good country – they are all very good walkers now - & got good grazing on the crops of Bearded Wheat & Barley – but Water is still scarce.
JOE 4/3/17. Letters from Mother & Daisy & May 27/2/17. Papers from Dolly & a Cake from Laura. All very acceptable. - on our arrival back into Camp after 24 hours on Outpost.
Every day we can watch our anti aircraft shells bursting among enemy planes – not much success tho'.
Day's letter had large cutting of D'quin Paper.
