1st October 1915

Silt Spur on Anzac looking from the trenches on Bolton's Ridge, where the 7th Battery's
guns were located, showing the amount of entrenching done here - October 1915.

Friday 1st Oct 

This morning there is a thick mist enclosing all the ocean skirting the shores of our battle field zone. The Islands of the Agean see are shut out from view and all the ridges hardly visible – the air being so thick & hazy.

Saw Capt Jack Fitzgerald our Field Cashier and had long talk. He was over to pay any monies required by the different units.
