15th September 1915

An Australian soldier emerges from the narrow entrance to Lady Galway tunnel, which
leads from Artillery Road in Victoria Gully to Allah Gully. Stacks of sandbags protect
the tunnel entrance, while two rough wooden signs (left) read: 'Adjutant office' and
'Quartermaster', September 1915.

It rained. Had to get up to catch the drops through my roof etc. Mud everywhere – sticks like glue much worse than our black earth etc. Fairly cold etc. Fine big mail arrived.
