Saturday 25 August 1917

[The following sentence crossed through.] My letters are following me. I got the M.O. to sound me, only Bronchial trouble & much better.

We get good potatoes from CYPRUS ISLAND now & fresh Beef so all is well.

We are in sound of the GAZA GUNS but quite safe here & all ranks enjoying the spell. The FIG TREES are all bearing now & PRICKLY Pears. The latter are soaked in water for 2 hours & the spines then rubbed up with a rag, quite good. Love to all.
