Quote of the day, April 26

Sgt. D Moriarty, 1st Royal Munster Fusiliers, British Expeditionary Force (25 April 1915)

“Landed on Turkish soil under a terrific fire from enemy entrenchments. Battalion lost about 17 killed and 200 wounded. I lay in the open from 7am till 5pm and did not get a scratch. Dug ourselves in that night; snipers going all night but we did not return their fire. Food for 24hrs: two biscuits and some water.”
