Dear Sir

In response to an invitation which appeared in the Columns of the Herald to send along any letters, descriptions or giving any information – regarding the Dardenelles Campaign, from those on active Service –

I enclose a letter from Sister M. R. Watt which generalises the position from a Nurses point of view – & the inconveniences attached to their labors –

Hoping it may be of use to you
Prince Wood
