Duty 1800 to 0600.
Very hot and muggy.
A Turk came into our lines carrying with him two pig skins of water and give himself up. His knowledge of English consisted of three words viz. I have come.
Asked to explain why he brought the water he said he heard we had none and as he intended giving himself up, he thought he may as well bring some with him. He meant well.
However, he will be better off with us. Their treatment is good.
