Left Esani at 1700 for Asluj.
Another all night ride.
Arrived Asluj following day 0700.
There are several big buck barracks, stables, mosque and wells. It was here we blew up enemy’s railway line including three bridges and a viaduct.
Enemy destroyed all wells before evacuating. No water obtainable. A fine defensive position and one that threatens Bursheba from the rear.
We are on the enemy flank now and waiting to strike.
