Left for training ground at 8.30, returning to camp at 1.45. again trouble with watercarts. Not sufficient in number. Terribly dusty road. Everybody covered when they returned to camp. Our tents also full. Adjutant out on Area at 7AM, testing layers. The 7th Battery furnishes layers as picket tonight carrying out tests tomorrow morning. Received from 3rd Infantry Brigade four watercarts for use of Brigade. (on loan).
Received letter from Nell dated Dec 9th – last received dated Nov 1st. lecture at night to officers and N.C.Os on work of day.
