  • Day 1265 of the war
  • George Gavin of Molong explains how he was shot in the leg while serving as a stretcher bearer for the Imperial Camel Corps near Gaza. He says he finished delivering his patients and managed to walk two miles to the field ambulance. George confesses:

It was a pleasure to get into a clean bed once more. I thought that I would forget what a spring mattress was like, but I wasn’t long getting used to them again. In one sense I was not sorry to get away from the fight, as I had not had a wash nor had my boots off for six days.
