Another morning at Bde HQ to-day & we had some practical work which is much more into my hand than theory, arrived back soon after 12 oclock, just in time to miss a shower of rain & it has been drizzling all the afternoon; Scurvy has broken out amongst the Indians & I believe that is what was the matter with Penny & Broadbent; An Aus mail arrived to-day & I opened one of Stans letter put in one from myself also one from Nowland to "both of us|", closed the envelope again with the gum off another envelope & sent it on with the rest; Came on duty at 5 oclock at PH & a couple of schrapnel shells cur down some bushes from over the top of the 'phone box as soon as we arrived doing no damage; Everything going along smoothly:
