Kenneth Alan McKenzie Diary - In support Miell Lane.
Carew Reynell Diary - Have been in trenches since Friday. Still nothing doing at all. McFarlane tells me that I am mentioned in the Army Corps orders this week for good work done. It isn't the same as being mentioned in despatches or anything of that sort and any old hen who keeps busy gets the same. Volunteers wanted yesterday to take out a few scouts to the front and through the Turkish lines. I volunteered and the Colonel recommended me but General Russell says I am "too valuable for the importance of the job". Personally I cannot imagine any more useful sphere than in getting information especially as a general advance appears to be on the cards. However if or when there is an immediate prospect of an advance I am to go out for a day or two and reconnoitre the country in rear of Turkish lines and in their lines. It is work that I feel I can be really useful at.
