‘Headquarters report that the demonstration here yesterday was very successful and thanks to all those who took part in it. We suffered a number of casualties but not what we expected. All day a constant rumble of heavy artillery action could be heard from Helles. At about 11pm a heavy dust storm sprang up and made things extremely uncomfortable for us at Clarkes Gully station where we were on duty. When the storm started an outburst of heavy rifle fire broke out but it did not last for long. A progress was made by the Allies at Helles yesterday and they advanced their lines up to 1000 yards in place.’
