12th September 1915

Turkish soldiers in their trench, similar to those being bombarded by the 7th Battery below.

Very like rain. Men to leave late to night. Mouse bit finger while laying half dozing. They run in & out of bags of which my store wall is built etc.

Fixed up a stretcher in store to make myself a little more comfortable. It was fine – you can bet I slept finely this evening.
