Transcript of diary extracts from diary relating to the First World War service of 993 Private John Joseph Chapman, 9th Battalion. These extracts are from a diary written by John Chapman between 28 February and 28 June 1915. In the extracts, Joseph Chapman gives a brief description of the landing at Gallipoli as seen from the deck of his ship, life in the trenches and the constant bombardment by Turkish artillery. The transcript of diary extracts was made in 1936 by Mr N K Harvey of Manly, Queensland, in response to a request by the Memorial. The location of the original diary is unknown.
