I went down and had a bathe before breakfast. We've started doing some of Muller's exercises now, generally before bathing, as they are supposed to strengthen the middle against the attacks of gippy tummy. Checking the lines for the guns this evening. Intelligence report in today: apparently the Bedouin in Sinai have been informed of the revolt of the Sheriff of Mecca, but at present there are no signs of them turning against the Turks.
