21st Sept.

Moved to new camp at 7.30 p.m. Bad camp. Nothing unusual.

22nd Sept.

Started latrines etc. going as in ordinary camp but with much more

stringent measures. Made good dugout (to) admiration of all.

2 p.m. Enemy shelled camp very heavily. 3 Killed and 5 wounded from our

battalion. Killed to be buried at 6 p.m. Killed include 1208 Johnson,

Cassidy wounded in waist both with me last camp as Postmen, also J.W.

Parry killed of Fat Party.

Coming from Ration Dump 8.30 p.m. (moonlight) noticed cooks dugout etc.


showed very plain- this was made last night by order of the Adjutant and

undoubtedly drew the fire today. Pointed this our to C.O. had dugouts

and latrines covered with bushes to make them appear like natural ground.

Men buried in cemetery at 'A' Beach West. Sorry for them all.

23rd Sept.

No shelling of our camp today but plenty on the outskirts at Mule park etc.

Has a nasty cold, turned in early.

24th Sept.

Feel lot better- cold nearly well- nothing of importance to record,

except that Lloyd (Padre) went to Imbros brought back wine, eggs, figs,

whiskey, brandy etc. Doctor Morgan not well. We shift to another place

tomorrow night. Heavy firing commenced at 7.45 p.m. at Gaba Tepe and Anzac.

Fancy its a demonstration to make Turks  use ammunition. Usual shelling but

not at our camp- thank goodness. Two letters from home.

25th Sept.

Busy day clearing out to new camp top of Kapanjir Sirt. Rough camp ground

but fairly safe from shells . Sea 200 + below us cliffs very steep

indeed, got down for the night about 11 p.m. Could not sleep at all.

26th Sept

Quiet day all round. Communion Service in dugout (C.O's) at 8.15 p.m. Slept

very well. One man of 'C'company wounded on beach.

27th Sept.

Feel A.1. Doctor and Jeff(erson) gone to hospital. Paid Padre L 11-16-9 for

grub, wine etc. Found Turcos reaping hook yesterday at Kapanjir Sirt. Sent

long letter to Lizzie. Good news of French and British in France who

captured 23,000 unwounded prisoners and took over 40 guns. Celebrated the

event with C.O. and Taylor. Whiskey was extra good.
