camel on the way. Drew rations for the natives & the camels & it was past 7 when I got the camels fed & barracked for the night.

Friday 30th
The Brigade came back in the morning to camp & I followed with the camels, filled up at the wells & distributed the water. After dinner sent all the camels to the Lake & watered them.

Saturday 31st
Had an easy time distributed the camels among the Bgde. drew the rations & then shifted camp. All the Divisional water & Hospital camels are being put together, so I handed my camels over to Lieut Fisher.

Sunday 1st April
Australian mail arrived today. I got 2 letters. There is artillery & rifle fire every day, but there has been no infantry attack on either side. We get good surfing every day & the water & weather is just right for it.

Monday 2nd April
Managed to buy a good supply of cigarettes, oranges & eggs. They are nearly impossible to obtain here just now & are very dear. We got an issue of bread first for over a week, but are still on the bully beef. 8 "Tanks"
