Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 134
possible, as it was thought that they may have taken troops from here to reinforce at Achi Baba, very heavy fighting has been going on in that direction all day. A German Taube flew over us
flew over us again to-day. About sundown yesterday 6 of our planes were flying over the point that the warboats bombarded to-day & they made a grand sight. I was not feeling too bright this morning & went to the Dr. again, he gave me 7 pills to take at one dose & I have been too frightened to move all day. The attacking party on the right had orders only to take 2 line of trenches, but they were not satisfied with that, but took also the third, the warboats seeing men moving in the 3rd line of trenches thought they were Turks & opened fire on them, our casualties were about 200 in consequence. 9th & 12th Btn. & a Sq. of 6th L.H. took part, the Turks.
