Monday, 1 January 1917

Posted notes yesterday with Photos of Turkish Officers etc., - enclosed. Rough night & No. 1 Pier & a Steam Trawler are wrecked just like Anzac over again. Our efforts always seem so puny against the Sea – am Prosecutor on a Court Martial today.

Weather cleared up & we have a sunny New Years Day.

Evening, 3 planes bombed Al Arish while Court sat. Some men stand up & try & photo, but I'll admit if I hear the bomb coming through the air I like to lie down – but in the sand bombs are more demoralizing than effective. DUST STORM blowing tonight everything sand, & the Horses move & are reformed.
