Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 141
Sat. 3rd. Geo. Edwards went to Lemnos this morning to buy stores for C Sqd. I gave him 7/- to buy rice, oatmeal, milk & sugar. Cameron was sent away sick this morning, nearly all of us have had a touch of dysentery, but yesterday & to-day I have felt as well as ever I did. I gave Cameron 1/- (my last) to buy paper & envelopes when he is coming back. Stan has not been feeling too well lately & is still crook on it. Rained a little last night & this morning but we managed to keep dry by spreading a couple of blankets over our dug-out. We have been talking a good deal about having some signalling practise but have not raised the necessary energy so far. We went for a swim again tonight & it was glorious. Our Howitzers have been doing a good deal of firing to-day otherwise everything rather quiet here.
