3 June 1916

Posted by Dick on June 3, 1916
Stood by before dawn and dismissed about five o'clock. After breakfast, I was very busy putting some 2 hundred rounds of ammunition, which came last night, into the gun limbers and 1st line wagons, which we had empted into the ammunition dugouts at the gun emplacements.

Bathed about midday - quite rough this morning, so had good fun with the breakers.

Finding mangos with the one man range finder most of the evening.

Intelligence bulletin tonight reports Turkish, German, and Austrian troops concentrating at El Arish. The 155th Infantry Brigade began arriving at Romani tonight, I think they mean to have one or two divisions out here eventually.
