'Gawd help the first bloomin' Turk I see to-night!!' By  Norman Cameron Wimbush 'Gawd help the first bloomin' Turk I see to-night!!' By Norman Cameron Wimbush ART00033

‘We returned to our camp at 7am and enjoyed a swim in the breakers which were coming fast and heavy, it is not often there are any decent waves here to get amongst. All the landing stages were more or less damaged by the rough sea that has been running all day and everything moveable was thrown high and dry up on the beach. A seaplane flew over about 7am. At about 9pm a thunder storm passed over but we got very little rain, a good fall of rain now would be welcome as we are depending on the water from the boats for our supply, the holes in the gullies are all dry and there is no water other than that in our vicinity except salt sea water.’
