Gallipoli Diary

Friday 16-4-15

Friday 16-4-15

Our ship's
company went ashore in
boats for a short march
& returned in the afternoon.
I went also & had a look
round the villages. They are
very crude - made of stones
& plaster and practically all
inhabitants are Greeks. Island
of Lemnos is about 50 miles
in length. — Soil is rather
poor but cultivated on flats
and it was grand to be
able to work on grass land
— the first since we left
N.Z. except of course for the
ornamental grounds of Egypt.
Fine spring weather much
like N.Z. in spring.
