June 1917
fairly strenuous time. We were paraded to the doctor this morning & examined. He put me on a weeks medicine, 3 times per day I have to go & get it. First day I forgot twice In the afternoon went for another swim in the lake. A large number of Australian reinforcements to the Light Horse detrained here & marched into the Isolation Camp. Noticed several old faces familiar in the original regiment back again

Thursday 21st
Was out at 4 am. Parades had to be away by 4.30 am. Breakfast at 8 oclock, so you feel it very long & get very hungry in the 4 hrs. The days are very warm. The swim in the Lake every afternoon is a treat. Tommies in thousands are arriving also guns. The place is absolutely full of them. They have come over from Salonica & they reckon they were glad to get away from there On Saturday there was a big aquatic sports carnival. The finals were all run off. There was a large attendance The Anzacs did particularly well taking nearly all the important events.
