Tuesday 26 June 1917

I quote news cabled to Egyptian Papers for benefit !!! of Troops or better I cut it out & enclose herewith – this is cabled mind you!! I hope the Chinamans garden is now above Water EGYPTIAN MAIL 24 June 1917. This afternoon my ambition to Fly was achieved. I went up 2000 ft. & saw the Minarets & Domes of GAZA, then over the Sea & back around the Sand dunes & Camps. I felt no "Mal de Aeroplane" & enjoyed it muchly - only for a Cricket that was on the TOE of my top Boot, which started to visit about when sitting still, all sorts of animals from Scorpions to Centipedes flitted [indecipherable].
