10 June 1916

Posted by Dick on June 10, 1916
Battery gun drill this morning. Bathed about midday. The colonel arrived for lunch; he has come up from Kantara for a day or two.

Practicing for night firing this evening with lamp signalling.

Got a little news today: the Russians seem to be giving the Austrians a bit of a dressing down in the Pripet Marshes.

A small mail in tonight - heard from Bill Broadhurst.

The intelligence report tonight says the Turks at El Arish have been further reinforced by two 'taburs' (about 2000) of Afghan troops. I wonder who they will get for us next?
