    'The Sebastopol* lads in camp here held a reunion in A Coy. 8th Batt lines at 2pm, and we all decided to have a group photo taken in front of the Sphinx, it was very unfortunate that so many were unable to turn up. Those present being J Allen, F Stevens, B Smith, W Madden, J Raine, J Kernick, J Humphries, J Kimberly, E Jensen, B Telfer, R Reardon, P Renfrey, J Whidburn and myself.'

    *Throughout his diary entries Herbert makes reference to fellow ANZACs from the Sebastopol area. Many soldiers fought hard to keep any links with the familiar.
