Comments: John Treloar kept a diary from the day he sailed from Melbourne in a ship of the First Convoy until March 1917, with the only interruption being for four months from September 1915 when he was evacuated from Gallipoli. His diary provides an intimate record of the events in the Middle East and France from the point of view of a staff officer who enjoyed the confidence of the great commanders of the AIF.
He had a varied career: he was with the 1st Australian Division’s General Staff, embarking on 21 October 1914, he served on Gallipoli as a Warrant Officer, was commissioned as a Lieutenant in No.1 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps, was ordered to report to 1st Anzac Corps Headquarters in France in July 1916 where he served until appointed to raise and command the War Records Section.
