Diary of an ANZAC
'We have to look after the sanitary conditions* of the camp. I went into Heliopolis with another chap and got back just in time to fall in when an alarm was sounded at 9.30pm. Heliopolis is about 2 miles from where our camp was pitched.'
*Sanitary conditions of the camps were important as poor conditions could lead to an outbreak of disease.
For the classroom: How could the spread of disease affect the ANZACs?
