Gallipoli Diary

Monday Mch 29/15

Review of the
NZ & A Division & march past
Sir Ian Hamilton at Zeitoun
Camp. — 3rd reinforcements and
Maori detachment participates

Fine day and splendid spectacle
but dust caused by so many
troops in movement was most
unpleasant — to say the least.

I heard a very original expression
today. One of my men came to
enquire of a man who was being
invalided home. When I asked
where the man was he replied
“over at the scrap heap sir!”
Further enquiry proved that this
was the soldiers designation of
the camp where men to be
returned home are situated.
