hell and there is much more to follow.

They are very much afraid of the

bayonet especially after they way

we drove them out of their position on

the beach. We also captured a

lot of their machine guns also some

of their artillery I think. I don't know

how many prisoners were captured, but

I do know that where ever my mate

and myself saw a Turk we gave him

a ticket home. When we were

charging them I saw one Australian,

a big man, bayonet a Turk and throw

him over his head. I think that Turk

must have got a shock.

Hoping all are well and wishing word missing, probably 'to'

be remembered to all the friends I will

now conclude for the present.

From your loving son
