In a letter to his mother Pte Dennis wrote
Now In Palestine It's a wonderful place. We get plenty of fruit and milk. Trip from Syria to Palestine was very pretty. I feel it a bit cold after Syria. The heat there was terrible. Camel ticks, flies, etc. Was in the fighting there but came out O.K. pretty dirty, and with a good growth on my face. Had a letter from Padre Salter.
When I come home Iíll want plenty of steak and eggs!
