- William Dalton Lycett of the 4th Field Ambulance at Gallipoli records in his diary:
Up at 6 a.m. and on duty at 7.30 a.m. Has been bitter cold all day. Breakfast for patients and cleaning up, then did sick parade with Captain Furber, afterwards medicines, dressings, fixing up newly admitted patients and discharges for those who are quite well again kept us very busy till dinner time. Not so busy after dinner from about 2.15 p.m. till 4 p.m. but from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. when tea is over we are very busy and have plenty to keep us buzzing till 7.30 p.m. when we are relieved by the night shift. Few exchanges of shells by our ship’s batteries and enemy’s batteries and a sharp rally of rifle firing this evening, don’t know what was doing. Turned in at 8 p.m.
