Saturday 15th January
Batteries on Manoeuvre area during morning. During afternoon review held. First Division marched past. Second Division whose horses are not yet fit did not march past. Generally a very good show. The General hinted to me that France would probably be our destination after a couple of months’ stay. Gen Hobbs cabled that he would leave Marseilles to day by R.M.S. MONGOLIA.
