Fri 3rd
Higginson as drunk as ever again today; Sgt. Nelson, Smithers, Reid, & Cpl Guthrie left here this morning to proceed to Zieteoun to the School of instruction; We are short of N.C.O.s at present & I volunteered today to be Cpl of the piquet & guard every third night to make it easier on the others, the heat is increasing daily & there is no danger now of being attacked.

Sat 4th
Was Cpl of the guard & piquet last night; Some natives erected a building here a couple of days ago & have started a canteen as their prices are exhorbitant & we have very little money as we had received no pay since leaving Wardon
