Saturday 16th March 1918
D Company of 1st/5th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, managed to salvage another hundred Turkish artillery shells on the night of 14th/15th near Mejdel Yaba. Yesterday morning snipers were sent out and remained out all day, which was very dull, the clouds hanging on the hills and making observation very difficult. In the evening heavy rain fell. Patrols sent out at dusk found no sign of the enemy.
