5 Sept, 1916
In have still got a bandage on my hand. When I was in swimming one day I broke the skin on the sore & it is awfully slow at heal ing, I have felt anything but fit since I have been down here & I should be really jumping out of my skin. I was in Alex again yesterday with old Jim Suffolk, cant say that I enjoyed myself much. Jims a real old woman for shop windows. This afternoon I was walking along the beach with a young Welsh Corporal who was inlightening my ignorance on the subject history. He pointed me out a hale & hearty chap whom he said was blown up through 20 ft of earth on the peninsular & to use his own words "It even blew all the lice off him" After this I mean to accept his tales of Welsh history with the proverbial grain of salt.
