DescriptionLetters relating to the First World War service of 644 Private Frederick Warren Muir, 1st Battalion. The letters were written by Private Muir to his Mother between 1914 and 25 November 1915 and describe the training in Egypt, his experiences in Cairo and his time at Gallipoli. Of the Landing, Private Muir states that "... 50 yards from the shore the destroyer stopped and we tumbled unceremoniously over the side into the ships' boats alongside...and springing out into the water we waded ashore to find ourselves at last on hostile soil".
