July 24 Saturday 1915
Feeling little better piles not so bad
12th A L H just arrived from Australia
Lieu Robson transport officer & Quarter master of the 6th A. L. H. Reg.
Killed at Anzac Cove.
Sergt Sestilian also killed, this man had a very narrow escape a short time back whilst lying in his dugout- a large piece of broken shell hit him on the back making a terrible bruise. If the piece had come edge ways it would have cut him in half. Poor fellow he was well liked, & had a smile for everybody.
