22 RECORDS OF THE ROYAL WELCH FUSILIERS July Each officer is to take a bundle to carry himself, containing waterproof sheet, blanket, and toilet things. He may also take his valise, with 35 lb. in it, but he will probably not see it again. Letters are going to be very severely censored. Everyone remained on the ship until the 15th, when : A really most damnable day ! We started disembarking at 8, so I got up at 6 and breakfasted at 7. Finally got off at about 9. The heat was intense, and much the hottest we have had. We had a very dusty i^-mile walk uphill to a bivouac, where we sat until 3, with not a scrap of shade. The water in our bottles was hot. At 12 we suddenly heard we were to go to Gallipoli to-day. Every- thing had been arranged for a stay of some three days, and it was just like the Staff to upset us.

Sir Archibald Murrays plan was to make as stout a resistance as possible about a mound called Katib Gannit, and to this end two brigades, the 1 st and 2nd Light Horse Brigades, under General Chauvel, had recon- noitred a position between Katib Gannit and Hod el Enna, on the edge of a tumbled area of sand-dunes that cropped up suddenly across the flat desert.
