Got splendid hamper on train. Saw marriage ceremony in Cairo. Band & procession etc











Friday 7th January

Discovered today an extraordinary state of affairs in Regimental Post Office. A man was caught throwing opened and unopened 3rd Brigade outward mail into the incinerator. Someone has evidently been pilfering. Instructed Major Burgess to investigate the case. Corporal in charge of Post Office placed under arrest. Commenced erection of Brigade Canteen. Expect we shall have some difficulty in effecting a Suitable Contract.
