Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 169
May. 31 Mon.
Fagging away at Arabic – know several words & can count up to 20 – Will try speaking it first, & reading & writing (which are much harder) later, if possible.
100 wounded were suddenly jerked in on us at 7.30 p.m. & with them returned 3 of our own men who have been away 2 months doing A.M.C. work on troopships & at Lemnos, Enos & Gallipoli Peninsula.
They are looking fit & have plenty to say concerning their adventures, having been under fire.
