[Monday 21 February 1916]

Lunched with Mohammed Pasha, a fine old educated Pasha, who has travelled a lot & been Host to KITCHENER All the Egyptians love "K" Mohammed gave me Brandy 50 years old & a good dinner. He had 2 lovely rings one a Ruby as big as a Rand the other a Signet ring with Antiquity Stone of old Egyptian days handed down from Father to Son- dressed in a Black silk Robe he sat playing with his Amber Beads, like R.C. With my mongrel french we had an enjoyable meal & I am thoroughly enjoying the whole show at present, but not much actual fighting
