Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 163
Sat. 31st. One of our warboats came in opposite us during last night & was firing heavy guns constantly for an hour, she was firing back probably onto Achi-Baba. Was relieved from the 'Phone at 12 oclock, went for a dip after tea.
Sunday 1st. When coming back from the swim last night, things began to hum, as all the rifles, machine guns & a few howitzers opened fire along the full front of our firing lines, we hurried back to see what was doing, but found it only a demonstration to keep the Turks here, as the Tommies are making a big attack at the Cape, shortly after 10 o'clock the warboats opened fire & by the noise at the "point" the fighting must have been terrific; we heard this morning that the attack was successful. Last night Hayes (B Sqd.) was shot dead while asleep in his dug-out & his mate Davis was wounded with the same bullet. Innoculated against Cholera.
