Item 05: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 19 March-15 August 1916 - Page 43
It has been very hot & windy today in fact the worst day we have had so far, the well here has not been working too well, but the pump has been fixed up & it is going along well now;
We generally have a swim after tea & then cards till 9.30 then cocoa before turning in;
Heard tonight that the Turkish aeroplanes bombed Port Said last Sunday.
Heard from Nelson today that I shall probably have to go to the School of Instruction next Sat; Sgt. Pike was sentenced to 6 months hard labour as the result of his Court Martial last Friday
Farrier Sgt. Simeon was sent away today as he was bit by a horse last night, & they are frightened of hydrophobia
