Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 186
Wed. 25th. The weather has been inclined to be stormy the last few days & heavy clouds have been going over us but only a few sprinkles have fallen; heavy bombarding has been going on around Cape Helles. I suppose the boats are still banging away at Achi-Baba. It is rumored that the boats are bombarding the Narrows & Achi-Baba for three days & then our Monitors are going to try a dash through the Narrows. We went on duty at Hinton's out-post again a dinner time to-day. Smithers is a little better to-day & is going on duty with us again tonight. Popes was shelled today but no damage done.
