‘At about 1pm a few T.B.Destroyers accompanied by another small craft, a balloon ship and fairly large transport steamed across from Imbros and disappeared from sight around Cape Suvla. A Monitor has been shelling enemy gun positions in the Olive Grove all afternoon, Having nothing better to do I spent the afternoon at our No 2 Artillery observation post where a fine view of the enemy positions in front of our right flank and away towards Helles could be obtained. Another battery of 5 inch Howitzers landed here.’
