Today O.O. Thirty men from the new draft left camp for Imbros under Capt. Marshall. At noon Lieut. Gould in the Spinet left for Stavros with a quantity of material and plant for pier contstruction. In the afternoon I took a burial party to hospital and thence to the cemetery by the side of the Greek Church at Portzanos [Portianos] to bury Sapper Harris. This man was taken ill on the Olympic and on arrival here to the hospital ship Somali in the harbour where he died. It was a very solemn ceremony in these Eastern surroundings.
Today I was posted in orders as acting O.C. of No. 1 Field Co.
