Writing under date l'2th December, Bombardier A. R Jacobson mentions meeting tbe Akaroa boys of the Sixth: —"As per syllabus, 1 am .still fit, and the climate, now that I have to walk a few miles a day, agrees with me very well. Two days' ago I bad the pleasure of watching three war ships and two monitors all in line pouring broadsides into the oppositionj The din was pretty solid, and aero* planes were scouting over the water watching out for submarines; The bombardment lasted about an hour and then the vessels quietly dropped out of sight. One of the funniest; eights we have had here was when some generals and staff officers were round inspecting things one morning. They passed the back of the guns to get further on, and a sniper who annoys us put a few bullets near them The way they doubled to the sap and got under oover was a treat, the general winning hands down. Have seen a fair amount of Lytton Ditely here, and a few days ego he and I ran into Link Armstrong, Owen Ferri?, two Hammonds, Maurice Lelievre, Tom McGuire, and another Akaroa boy. They all look well, and we bnd a bit of a confab about things. 1 am Postmaster General for our mob now, but tfau mails have been a bit backward of lato."

Writing Inter: "I went to Gallipoli weighing list lOlbs, and came back weighing ISafc lib. Not too bad on bully beef end bisouits."
