Diary of HV Reynolds - Epilogue
Herbert spent the next 10 days in very poor condition. He was unable to eat or drink let alone write. He was evacuated off the peninsula and spent time at Lemnos Field Hospital before being invalided back to England.
Though he returned to his unit in Egypt and continued on to serve on the Western Front until the end of the war he never fully recovered from this illness and like many Anzacs carried this experiences at Gallipoli with him for the rest of his life.
He returned to Sebastopol Victoria where he lived out the remainder of his life as a husband and a father. Private Herbert Vincent Reynolds died in 1978 at the age of 82.
