I'll do a bit of scribbling to use up the last bit of light left to the day, its a grey evening, quite exceptional here & the crescent moon usually so bright just has an occasional dim glimpse of us. Ive had a lazy day been reading all the day. Buezie came in with a "wire" to the effect that El Arish was to be taken shortly & the Light horse would then shift to a new front, The "tale" is so old that it ought to be sung to the tune Annie Laurie or some thing of the like. Harold has had a most wonderful excess of energy lately, He & Mc have clipped all the troop horses, they finished up today with the aid of the machines.
