Breakfast of fried bananas and a “small bird” which I caught last night. About 2 a.m. the rebels took to their old tactics of firing volleys at our outposts so that if we answer they will know where our line is located. But our boys kept still, yet the 21st fired fully 2500 rounds, but then they have not had the experience the Wn have had, for six (6) months ago last night at taps I first heard the crashing of Mausers and today we took St Ana and the Paco Church was burnt.
