Wed 13th
Had a fraud of a mail in this morning & did not go around to the 'phone box, but took a dozen sand bags around this afternoon & finished off any work that can be done in the day time; Nelson was knocking about again to-day so he cannot be too bad; One of the B Sqd Sigs went sick this morning & I got McDonald of A Sqd to take his place; one of our aeroplanes appeared to be in difficulties this afternoon & was volplaning down & and came very low over the Turks trenches, The Turks opened a heavy rifle and machine gun fire on her; the 'plane eventually landed on the beach & the aviator & pilot had to run for cover as the Turks peppered it with shrapnel, it landed near Suvla Bay.
