'A small ration of flour and rice was issued to us today. Providing we can turn it into something eatable it will be a welcome change to our small rations. At about 6pm one of our aeroplanes flew over and bombed the enemy lines. As I was going round to see some mates in the 4th Fld Amb and enemy shell exploded on a barge near the C.C.Station in the Cove, a number of troops were in swimming and some of them were in the barge, several being badly wounded. Captain Campbell, a medical officer of one of the Light Horse Regiments had both legs shattered.’
