online resource
posted on 2024-02-23, 23:01 authored by Great War Archive Project Team

This is a small pocket notebook, the diary of Dr W. Roy Blore from embarkation from Britain in July 1915 en route for the Dardanelles campaign. Pages 15-19 record the landings at Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, and the rest deals with the everyday life and work of the RAMC there, including the evacuation, [the family believe that Blore was the last RAMC officer to leave that part of Gallipoli] and ongoing life in Egypt until February or March 1916.

Also part of this collection are all Blore's letters home, his notebooks from his service as a doctor at Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, and on the Western Front - as well as his sleeping bag and many other artefacts including a photo of Blore outside his dugout at Suvla Bay.
