Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 93
Mon. 31st. The warships were booming all night further back, but the attack we expected did not come off & things were very quiet here all night. A few bombs were exchanged between our boys & the Turks on Quinns Post during the night but that was about all. I had no sleep last night but managed to get 3 hours this morning in the trench. At 3.30 p.m. one of our aeroplanes flew over us & the Turks must have fired 20 shrapnel shells at her but they all failed to hit her. Yesterday both flanks advanced, New Zealanders on our left & Aust. on the right & have managed to hold the ground they took. Our torpedo boat destroyers appear pretty busy this afternoon, probably scouting for submarines. We were relieved from the trenches soon after 4 oclock & were soon after into dug-outs close by on the side of the hill.
