18 June 1916

Stood by as usual at three this morning and dismissed at four thirty. A clear morning. Church parade at our mess tent at eight o’clock.

I saw a shark this morning. The brute came right in under the breakers in about three feet of water. I thought he was only a dolphin at first. He looked about six or eight feet long.

No enemy plane came over to disturb our Sunday siesta this afternoon.

We hear the Essex and West Riding Batteries have had their draft horses taken and been given mules instead, but I believe there may be a chance of our keeping our horses after all.
