18th May 1916

Members of the Light Horse Field Ambulance on exercise in the Egyptian desert,
erecting makeshift shelters in an attempt to stave off the extreme heat, 1916.

Thursday 18th May

Shooting again this morning but I did not feel up to attending. The heat is again as bad as ever, it is real Hell. My hut yesterday at 1 o’clock was 112° and last night at 11 PM it was 98°. Am taking a quiet day.
