Wednesday 11th
The Brigade got back into camp at 3 pm & we soon got the dust off us by a plunge into the sea. Sharks have been seen & police patrol the beach Got news of a big British success in France. An Australian mail also arrived I got 3 letters dated 25th Febry. Posted letters to Doug & Roy

Thursday 12th
We got a lecture on the use of gas helmets & it was very interesting We will have to get a fair bit of drills to make us quick at using them A Turkish aeroplane dropped a few bombs near the aerodrome, but came under heavy shell fire & nearly got hit They are getting a great respect for our anti guns & fly at a great height. Heard that the Scotties captured a Turkish outpost & some machine guns also that a German spy had been captured in our lines dressed as an Australian officer. He was inspecting gun positions. Our Brigade brought in 2 Turks & 2 Bedouins today A watch from home arrived by packet registered post.

Friday 13th
