A Squadron this afternoon, & we were beaten by 8 to Nil after a strenuous game, I then had a dip in the briny & after tea had some boxing with Cunes. Report came through tonight from the Flying Corps that the big guns did excellent work today; 18 pounder were of no use; The infantry (Scottish) made one of the finest charges on record over open ground to within 200 yds of the enemy's front line of trenchs & then dug in; The Mounted Troops are behind Gaza cutting off the enemy, also stopping any reinforcements coming up, & the final assault is to be made tonight, & Gaza is expected to be in our hands before morning. A large number of Hospital vans came out today from Kantara.
