Barometer and Thermometer Readings - Cape Helles

Hi Everyone

I have come across a series of barometer and thermometer readings in the 'B' Battery, 66th Brigade RFA War Diary for the period 25th October to 31 December 1915. The Battery were at Cape Helles and the height is 40 metres where given in the remarks column of the War Diary. The readings are taken at various times of the day and on some days, more often than others. From previous forum topics there seems to be a particular interest in the period covering the end of November, which are listed below, but I can add December if anyone would like them posted here. The type of barometer is not given, but I'm sure someone on the forum will be able to be help and indeed interpret the figures better than me.

Regards

Alan
