|Title||Letter from Dr W.R. Blore M.C. RAMC|
|Notes||This is an extract from a photocopy of a letter from Dr W.R. Blore M.C. RAMC sent on 14th October 1915, from Suvla Bay, Gallipoli. It includes a sketch of Blore's dug-out which he had photographed, the film must still be awaiting development - as it was not developed until Blore and his comrades were evacuated in December 1915/January 1916. His family believe that Blore was the last RAMC doctor to leave Suvla Bay during that evacuation. This letter describes the chair which was actually shipped over from England in his luggage. Also described in the letter is his 'washing', which is probably the Kapoc sleeping bag hanging on the bushes. He describes the waterproof cover and the location and direction of the ditches designed to keep his dug-out dry.|
Also part of this collection are all Blore's letters home, his notebooks from his service as a doctor at Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, and on the Western Front - as well as his sleeping bag and many other artefacts.
