Saturday 30 June 1917

A specimen of a large DESERT snake was killed in a subalterns blankets this morning – they are shinier than the Australian snake & more stumpy tailed – some poisonous. Big guns going all this morning – we have a job on MONDAY.

Just heard that the S.S. Mongolia has been sunk near Bombay with our letters home so probably you will miss my notes for a few weeks.

I believe DR. NORMAN Robertson & his wife were on board, but have not heard the Casualties yet. I hope they may be safe.
