Monday 29th March
Our troops at Mena reviewed in morning by General Sir Ian Hamilton. General Godley also present. He invited us over to Zeitoun in the afternoon to see a review of the New Zealand & Austn Division. Major Burgess, Browne and Hughes accompanied Jopp and myself.
We had lunch at the Continental and then motored out to the review. It was a great sight though the dust rather spoiled the effect.
