Monday 20th
It turned very cold last night & this morning is a "freezer" & clouds hanging around threaten to give us a ducking as well: Clouds cleared off early & had a fine day A sailing vessel came on the scene this morning early with divers on board they are here to dive for the shells that were sunk a few days ago, The Turks soons got the range of the boat & succeeded in hitting her twice below the water line, & she sank slowly the water was very shallow, but she is resting on the bottom; a good deal of artillery fire has come over the last few days but it is seldom any damage is done, & most of the shells fall far out to sea. A good deal of shooting goes on at the boats but it is very rarely they score a hit; Went down for a swim again this afternoon & had a cold swim. Bought 4 doz eggs today at 2/9 per doz.
