Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 148
Sat. 10th. Indian meal for breakfast again this morning & it is very good, had rice for dinner (quite a luxury). Les came down shortly after dinner & has to go on again at 9 oclock tonight, put the afternoon in practising signalling & about 3 oclock the Lord Nelson
& Warspite came on the scene opposite us & opened fire with heavy guns & appeared to be dropping them on a hill this side of Achi Baba. Had a good feed of rice for tea & then went to the beach for a swim the water was rather chilly tonight also last night, but well worth the trip. The days are getting hotter here & it is no trouble to work up a good perspiration.
