14th Oct.

7th Battalion coming tonight from Lemnos. I draw their food, wood etc. Took

some Kit inventory. Aeroplane has gone from Salt Lake. Nothing unusual.

15th Oct.

7th Battalion came in at 5 a.m. Took balance of Kit inventories today.

Turks shelled wood and camps near our lines. I forgot to say 2(nd)

Herefords were hit (one badly) just below our latrines yesterday. A most

hard camp to keep clean but Sergeant Catherwood  (a good hard working old

soul) manages it A.1. Schwarz seems alright again but has a harrassed look

about him and is not at all lively,fancy he's down in the dumps a bit.

Sent L. a letter also parcel Jacket, Breeches , Hook Spurs and whip. Second

dose of inoculation against Cholera.

16th Oct.

Enemy aeroplane came over. Our gun made good shooting but did not bring it

down. Received 1st parcel from home also received letter from L. and

Abbott. Delighted with parcel, wife knows my weakness for sweets etc.

Navy's gun is busy tonight in Gulf of Saras firing on the pimple "Jephoons

Post".

17th Oct . Sunday.

Morning opened with very heavy shelling by the Turks, little damage as far

as I can gather. Sent letters to L. and Abbott.

18th Oct.

Usual intermittent shelling during day. Weather much colder. Spent

afternoon sewing.

19th Oct.

Received letter from L. dated 27th Sept., also some papers. Cold and windy

day. Nothing unusual to note.

20th Oct.

Started letter for L., did not finish it- too busy. Still very cold an

strong wind. Both sides very quiet, saw flashes from our own guns

bombarding Bulgarian coast about 8 p.m.

21st Oct.

Alarm took place. T.H. Parry and H.M. Davies rejoined us. Fenwick took over

mess cooking. Parry came to lunch and was delighted. Very windy day also
