After three montha there waa a call
for volunteer regiment a to open tha

We were aunt to Davonport. Eng

a transport and were on our way to

Cape llellla. The tranapnrt arrived
iff Lamnos, Greece, on the 17th of

that we were In for an awful time.
So we were ordered to be ready at a

half our regiment never reached tha

wire entanglementa and some of tha
boats being upturned In the water,
the fellowa were obliged to awlm,
with rifle and pack, that weighs about
65 pounds. You can Imagine what
It waa like.
On reaching the ahore we deployed
and wont forward on the run to the

Acha Uaba, on the top of which the
Turks had their baterlos. Aftor ar
