Shrapnel Valley, Gallipoli
15 May 1915
Today was horrible, nearly all my patients died. I found
my friends’ dead body lying on the track. His name is
Tom and he got shot in the heart. I put him on donkey
Duffy’s back and we carried him back down the track to
our camp on the beach.
So far we have rescued about 300 men. I am exhausted
and can’t believe how hot it is. I want to get out of this
dusty uniform. I do not like this hot weather. I don’t
want to be at this war anymore because it’s so
terrifying. I want Duffy to have a rest. We all smell of
sweat and blood.
I wish this terrible war would end so all the people could
go home and lie in their cosy warm beds.
