Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 149
Sun. 11th. Stan & I attended Church parade in the Valley this morning, Col. Merrington conducted the service. We had an issue of frozen beef this morning & had steak for breakfast, stew for dinner & rice for tea (living high). The Turks have been giving Steels Post a rough time again this evening & a good many bombs were exchanged with the Turks on Quinns Post, our bombs lighted the Turks "bomb Proofs" & burned gayly, a battery of mountain guns opened fire about sundown with a rattle but only fired about 20 shots. The Turks gave Steels Post a rather warm time about 7.30. Stan & I went to hear Col. Merrington give a lecture on Constantinople, a piece of shell caused an interruption, as it buzzed close over our head & fell about 30 yds. farther up the gully.
