‘Up to the present we have been in square ridge pole tents in this camp, but today we had to pack them up and return* them to ordinance, bell tents being supplied in their place in most cases. The occupants of No 2 and No 1 tents (the latter being ours) have to share the space of one of our large tortoise tents. Spent the evening at the Pyramids picture show.’
*In preparation for the landing, camps were being set up on the island of Lemnos. This was intended to be a support base for the operations on Gallipoli.
