Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 241
Aug. 13 Fri.
Last night we received a big batch of Reinforcements to the Unit from Australia:- 8 Officers, 4 men & no less than 50 Nurses.
About 60 patients in the Hospital unfit for further service left for Australia this morning & with them 2 Officers, 10 men & 5 Nurses as Staff on the Hospital ship Thermistocles. This is about the sixth batch of our own Unit that have gone & I feel very much like putting in for the three months trip, sooner or later. There is not much chance of No. 2 G.H. running away from Egypt until the Dardanelles operations are brought to a finish.
