The last entry in the diary of Ellis Silas -:

As I look into the distant future when the sound of guns is but an echo of the past, in grand array shall I see the spirits of these my comrades marching past, who in the greatness of their souls have handed to future generations a fuller, deeper meaning of the word Patriotism.

Ellis Silas served at Gallipoli as a signaller with the 16th Battalion AIF until he was evacuated suffering from shell shock on 28th May 1915.
