I wish you could see me in my GAS MASK like a Teddy bear will send you a photo if possible – all ranks are issued with them.
Night march on SHELLAL infantry attack GAZA at dawn.
Arrived SHELLAL 5 A.M. My Squadron left Flank Guard. Good country – large quantity of cultivation Barley & Wheat – Grasses including all I gave before plus BARLEY & TIMOTHY Umbrella & Couch. Just been over to the 6th L.H. to see some old friends. They tell me they will meet me in the Hospital Clearing Station tomorrow – Cheerful.
