Orderly corporal

Posted: February 22, 2015 by saraherhodes in 1915

The Brigade had leave from 9a.m. to 10.30p.m. as I am orderly corporal I have to stay in, not that I mind much, as I haven’t any money and am rather tired of town. I spent the day in printing photos, washing clothes, washing myself, and darning sox. I am some tush on socks now. I have darned nearly every sock I have. We are all short of socks now, have had only one pair issued since we left.

Among the Turkish dead was found the body of a German Officer, who led the attack on the Suez. He had a decent burial, and his grave is marked by a cross, with an inscription.
