October 1917
to 3.

Saturday 6th
More enemy planes came over at a great height & were heavily fired at. One unexploded shell fell fairly close. Some thought it was a bomb coming down & ran for a ditch. Was having a bath at the time & had to stand fast. Brigade sports were held today. There were some good events. The band was playing & General Allenby & Genl Chaytor were both present.

Sunday 7th to Sunday 14th
We have had an easy week. The weather has got a good deal cooler & several mornings have been very foggy. The afternoons have been dusty. Football has been continued with vigour Several squadron matches & 2 inter regimental matches, both of which were draws. We had the pleasure of seeing a German aeroplane brought in. It was brought down by one of ours over the Wadi & the pilot was captured behind the lines. Our air service has improved considerably. There are some splendid aeroplanes here now & they ought to shake Jacko up a bit.
