Entered Amman after a sharp fight.
No news to speak of.
Number of prisoners taken so far in Amman is 4000, several guns, and huge quantities of material and many machine guns. Bedouins and Circassians have started a small war on their own. Amman thickly populated. Hospitals full of civilian wounded and sick. Armenian and German doctors assisting our medical staff.
Shot two Bedouins stealing clothes off wounded Germans, stench something awful.
Buried a NZ mate of mine - C A Campbell.
Total captures up to 28th 51,000 men and 312 guns.
Later - Garrison of 5000 Turks at (Zizi) surrendered to our Regt on condition they would be allowed to retain their arms until the forces were sent to protect them. Our boys assisted the Turks in holding the trenches against Arabs. It was the funniest thing imaginable. We were allies for one night.
