I missed a day this week but I am enjoying posting the pages. Even after all my familiarity with it, going through it page by page gives me a new appreciation of how packed this brief account is with detail. I cannot believe I once thought it boring. In these pages we travelacross the Aegean to Constantinople via Lemnos and Moudross – where we have the first sight of the ‘Bolshies’ in the form of one of their ships run aground – and then The Dardanelles and Gallipoli and where wrecks are still visible from those recent, tragic engaements. there is time for a very brief history of the HMS Porto, to land at Constantinople and to enter ‘St. Sophie…’ now the Hagia Sophia, all in five pages.
