Friday, 3 January 1919
President of 3 Field General Court Martials today. Went into figures of 1st L.H. Regt. & find the following –
Casualties, not sickness
Officers – Other ranks
46 – 636
not counting twice, wounded. These figures are larger than any other Australian Unit yet many people think the L.H. have done little or no fighting.
See next page.
General Allenby's words were printed in big white letters –
"I was proud of you once. I am proud of you no longer." This was the end of this speech after the Bedouin affair.
