Just discovered that there was a Russian Ship in Mudros Bay don't know whether it was part of the force that was shelling the forts but it was there

9/4/1915: Nothing of importance today, several others transports arrived. Another pay day today 10/- everything pretty quiet, over the side again for a swim, parade twice daily with full pack and marching orders, however we do nothing. Many battleships are now in the harbour including the Russian Ship Ask old, the Queen Elizabeth, Triumph, London, Prince of Wales and others that have been bombarding the forts of the Dardanelles.
