3 October 1918 Thursday (X to X crossed out)
Fever still bad- we have never been up to strength this year, altho' reinforcements come in dribs & drabs- I return paper cutting with this re July 14 fight,
"It was the vigorous infantry assault" it should read "dismounted" there were no infantry there.
If Turkey makes peace I hope I shall not be sent out of Egypt- X Dolly has just moved to Villa Montrose Pension Heliopolis- where Mardi stayed. I never met her hubby but she should get one of the best. X I cannot but feel glad that the fighting is over here & I have seen it through from Gallipoli to the Canal & to Damascus
