27th January 1916

Australian soldiers resting in groups on the top of the only hard track along the banks
of the canal on their desert march from Tel-El-Kebir to Serapeum.

Thursday 27th January

On Manoeuvre area all day. Very good Brigade drill. Major Miles temporarily appointed to Command 8th Battery and Captain Waite appointed Adjutant to this Brigade.

Capt. Jopp in Cairo re A.P.M duties. Again bitterly cold on the Manoeuvre Area, and smart rain squalls. Shall be very glad to get between the blankets tonight.
