Monday 31st January

Attended at Paymaster’s Office. Adjusted Brigade Trust account and opened account with the Anglo-Egyptian bank. Our officers subscribed 1275 Pt for a present for Capt. Jopp and his wife. After lunch I went with Mrs Jopp to the Bazaar and purchased a very nice Turkish Coffee set in inlaid brass and silver, also a similar type of tray. While there met Admiral Weymess and had a chat with him re Charley, who was with him in H.M.S. Charybdis. Caught 6.15 PM train back to Camp. Saw Commander Bracegirdle in the train.
