Another night march to
Deiran not far from our old camp in the Richon days. Now all the country is changed as the Vineyards are full of ripe grapes- Melons Cucumbers everywhere- In the distance we can hear Jaffa being shelled & enemy planes came & had a look at us.
I am still in command of the Regiment but of course we are doing nothing & our C.O. is acting Brigadier. My chief work now is to get my men mounted again & horses shod up It was bad luck losing so many. Oil engines are puffing away watering the Vineyards-
