Sun 17th          (Last night the 3rd LH patrol failed to return)

We had a shower of rain at 3 oclock this morning but managed to keep dry; Church Service was held this afternoon by Col Green; General Chauval was here for the service. Everything is very quiet.

Mon 18th
A message came through last night saying The Turks fast from the 18th to the 20th & we are to be prepared for a fanatical attack in consequence; Sentries & the patrol have been doubled tonight: I came into the tent to go to bed tonight & found there had been a land slide & there is about a yard of dirt over most of our gear; I generally put in an hour or two after tea playing cards We were issued with a new blanket each to-day Believed that 3rd LH Patrol was ambushed and captured last Saturday night
