alantwo Posted 14 October , 2013 Share Posted 14 October , 2013 I came across a short entry in the 66th Brigade RFA HQ War Diary by the Commanding Officer, which may be of interest to Forum members. Kind regards Alan Place: In the Field (Cape Helles) Date: November 1915 Quarters Constructed and Occupied Headquarters have moved into a commodious range of winter quarters, situated as before described, (EAST cliff of GULLY RAVINE, about 50 yards SOUTH of ARTILLERY ROAD, they moved around 27th November) and constructed on a terrace cut out of the side of a cliff, and built: walls of sandbags with window and door panes; the roof, for want of other material, being of Tarpaulins with wooden rafters. The whole very complete with fireplaces cut into the wall of sandstone rock. The comfort of Officers and men being met in every way. The simplicity and regularity of the architectural design of these quarters, and the comfort provided for, are the envy of the Peninsular. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
