Jack Simpson's Journal

Shrapnel Valley, Gallipoli

18 May 1915

Today I survived my 23rd day of war.  Me and Duffy took 

38 wounded down the hillside to the beach.  We are 

exhausted.

Today we had the worst day ever.  I had to work in 

smelly clothes.  I stink!  I had to go right to the battle 

front to get the wounded men.

Duffy and I are so tired and I want to go home.  It is 30 

degrees and I’m exhausted from going up the narrow 

path to get to the fighting.

I hate the blood and grit on my hands and I am 

exhausted.

I want to go home.
