8 June 1918 Saturday
Took over Front Line as INFANTRY once more, same as the Peninsular, our Horses being left about 3 or 4 miles back. We are in trenches close to Johnny Turks who shell if we make any movement- very Hot & many Snakes, Scorpions etc- the Horned VIPER is very deadly & a big brown fellow- In between in No Mans Land are many Hares, Gazelle, Wild Pigs etc:- My Squadron is split into 3 parts situated in Ironstone Boulders on edge of Valley- We expect to be in the Trenches for about a fortnight- Malaria bad, but I am nearly immune now after Portugese & East Africa & Quinine I've swallowed.
