29th March 1915

Men of the Field Artillery pass the saluting base during General Sir Ian Hamilton's
review of the 1st Division at Mena Camp, on the 29th March 1915.

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.
