8 July 1916

Posted by Dick on July 8, 1916
One of our battleplanes was circling about over us from about seven till eight this morning on the chance of the Boche turning up, but there was nothing done. Bathed this morning; old Garside bathed with us - his first for 15 years. He really is a marvel, over sixty and yet skips about out here like a two year old.

The major has gone down to Kantara to see the General, so Elliott has come up here tonight from Romani.

I heard from Cecil Ellis tonight, he has got his captaincy and seems to be having a great time. Up in the O.Pip tonight.
