June 1917
Wednesday 6th
Men who were away on leave came back & a few more went, only 2 from B Sqdn. We are moving from this camp in the morning. Got more papers & parcels.

Thursday 7th
Reveille at 3.45 am. Had an early breakfast & were on the move about 7 oclock. We only about 5 miles to travel. The New Zealand Brgde passed us on their way to our old camp & we occupied theirs. We were all settled down in the new camp before noon. We get a fair bit of dust here & no swimming. The days are warm still but in the afternoon there is always a cool breeze.
Saw a few French Algerian troops, I believe there are a good few here now. Enemy planes have been less active. Ours have had a few successes lately, so they are not so keen on coming over. Artillery on both sides are very active & we heard the Turks had made a local attack without success.

Friday 8th
Got more papers & parcels. Quite a good supply of stuff came from the Comforts fund & there was also a couple of bottles of beer per man. Wasn't feeling so good at night. Had a lot of stomach pains & no sleep

Saturday 9th
Had a bad day. Bowels in
