From the diary of HE Fernandez Medical Officer at the above hospital.
To tell you the truth, this place with all its horrors and misery and worry is beginning to get on my nerves.
Everyone of our Staff of Doctors has gone except Buntine, who still keeps on . Ladysmith itself (4 and a half miles away) In my big marquee about the same time I lost a man named Alborough quite unexpectedly whose brother was sent away from here a few days ago with the most hopeful account of the patients condition.
