My thanks go to Ben Franks for sharing with us this fascinating blog about Charlie Bailey, who served with 22nd Division in Salonika:
Members should have received this latest edition of The New Mosquito by now. Please contact the Society if you are expecting a copy, but haven’t received it. New editor, Ian Cochrane, is to be congratulated on his first issue which has a fresh new look, whilst maintaining the excellent quality of articles that members have come to expect.
One of the more bizarre items in my Salonika-related post card collection is a dead mosquito, apparently captured in February 1919 and mounted on a post card.
In this final instalment of extracts from William Pearce’s diary of the campaign in Macedonia, we have a timely reminder that men were still serving overseas, even though the guns had fallen silent. My thanks to Mark Pearce, William’s great-grandson, for making this diary available.
