Diary of an ANZAC

Please note: Care has been taken to transcribe these entries without alteration to preserve the original language of Herbert Vincent Reynolds.

‘This afternoon a Monitor shelled the enemy positions behind Kaba Tepe. At about 10pm the enemy guns in the Olive Grove fired a few shells at our stores in the cove, it is unusual for the enemy to use his artillery after dark.’

*Due to the nature of the evacuation very few items could be taken by ANZACs as they left. The watch above is part of a relatively small collection compared to the items brought back from the Western Front.

For the classroom:  If you had to leave your house in a hurry and could only bring one item what would that be?
