Fri 22nd

Last night our patrol under Sergeant Lowe went almost up to the Turkish trenches & observed the enemy working on the parapet: he fired a flare from a revolver & the machine gun section who was waiting immediately opened fire giving the Turks a little shock; It set in to rain nice & steady about dinner time to-day & has been coming down nice & steady ever since. It is a brute in the trenches tonight but very warm and comfortable in this 'phone dug-out; Cakes can be bought on the beach for 2/- each but a man is very lucky to get one, as there are hundreds lined up awaiting their turn, they are sold by the Y.M.C.A. & made at Imbros by all accounts are not the best in the world; On duty from 2 AM till 6
