Gallipoli Diary

Friday 9-4-15

Friday 9-4-15.

Very warm
day No parades until 11 pm
when troops begin to move out
for entraining for transports at
Alex. Wgtn Batt. trains are
arranged for 2.20 am & 5.20 am
Saturday. Everyone cheerful and
pleased at prospects of fighting
ahead. A large number of
regular English & French soldiers
go forward with us and very
extensive operations are expected.

An attempt was made on
the Sultan's life yesterday by
some fanatic who was since
arrested. Reports today state
that Turks are again in touch
on Suez Canal probably only with
idea of harassing our troops.
