Carew Reynell Diary - Absolutely nothing doing. We are still in our rest camp and don't go back to the trenches till Friday. It's to be a fortnight in and a fortnight out. We have had a lot of sickness since coming out of the trenches and the doctors are getting afraid of an outbreak unless we move soon. The Turks pitched a score of shells into our camp yesterday. When the first arrived three Indians were killed and half a dozen mules and I ordered everyone into their dugouts. However, one caught the Quartermaster's dugout and killed his batman and severely wounded the storeman and took top of Daly's helmet off and wounded Major Cook and the Sergeant Cook. Major Cook is doing well I am glad to say. Am sending these of by the RC Padre and hope they will arrive all right. We were treated to another dose of shells this morning - no damage - not even to the Indian Mule Corps.
