(continued) Engrs here. Church parade was held this morning on the edge of the desert for Engrs at which, the reinforcements by the "Star of Vic.," which arrived in camp yesterday, attended.

It was a very interesting sight but the bones skeletons & the old relics of the battle presented a rather gastly spectacle.
