3rd Light Horse Brigade War Diary - Enemy showing activity on extreme left towards Amafarta and Salt Lake where a regiment of mounted men and a battalion of infantry were seen. It appears enemy anticipates our movement in this direction.

A considerable wastage in 3rd Light Horse Brigade and New Zealand Mounted Rifles from sickness chiefly stomach and from over work. Very difficult to man trenches effectively with troops available and the heavy calls for digging parties, extreme heat, dust and flies having effect in fighting strength.
