morning, but it took him nearly all say inspecting the 7th & the Machine gun Squadron
A & C Squadrons went out at 4 am & one troop of B Squadron followed later. There was much aerial activity & anti guns were very busy nearly all day. All the night on the 7th LH lines Chaplain Colonel Woods gave us an interesting lecture on Gaza & its history. There was a big audience & they listened very eagerly to all he had to say.
Had a quiet day in camp. Church parade in the evening before tea.
The Squadron was up early & got away mounted with picks & shovels to Tel-el-Jemmi where we dug basins for the storage of 24,000 gallons of water
We finished at 3.30 pm. Whilst we were working 2 Turks came in unarmed & gave themselves up. One was a sergeant & the other a corporal. The 7th got a cavalryman but except for his sword & boots his equipment wasn't very good
The day was very warm. The brigade moved out at 11.30 to go out on outpost before the Turkish post at Weli Sheikh Nuran
