Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 103
Sun. 6th. An order came out late last night that there was to be religious services this morning, but as we were on duty until dinner-time we did not attend. Everything the same to-day as usual & no armistace. It is rumored that 18,000 Turks have been cut off by the English & French & will either have to surrender or be annihilated. About sundown a few Jap bombs were fired into the Turks trenches. Complained to the Dr. this afternoon about my cold & received some pills for it. Flies are getting very bad here. All precautions are being taken against diseases & colds are the only sickness to be found.
