Jacko's coming in. They had made great defences here- Our casualties very light, only pack transport single file- Our wireless gear fell down a cliff & killed the horse & finished apparatus- Struck aTurks metalled road at Es Salt littered with dead & dying animals & men- Our planes had bombed them Burnt Motor Cars, capsized guns including our friend Jericho Jane & all ammunition abandoned- A routed Army is a cruel sight. Camped at AIN HERAN collecting straggling Turks en route- tally now 35 000 & 250 guns.
