Today was spent quietly in the billet.
In the evening my duty was that of prowler guard from 6pm – 12 midnight. This duty
entails a strict watch be kept on each of the six T.A.C. guards, by patrolling
anywhere within the perimeter wire. Also
patrolling from one tower across the roof to the other tower.
These are the only station guard duties we are called upon to perform
so for myself I find them much lighter than those at Shafa Amr.

used for making a cistern by the school for the schools use & for
irrigation. I had a long talk with the
head-master. I found him very well
spoken & versed in present day affairs.
He also held very strong views on teaching many of which I had to agree
with him upon. He does not like anyone
to have a text book other than the teacher.
This policy has been argued upon & I find there is much to be said
for it & against it.  Temporary Additional Constable British Constable
