Fri 5th
Signalling close to camp this morning; the troops have gone to the range for musketry; We went over to the HQ lines after dinner & found they were giving us a half holiday on account of Bivouac to-night, so we played "quoits" all until it was time to fall in for stables; Just as I was making a rush for the mess room I ran into Arthur Welch & a friend who came out to see me; At 9 o'clock we had the horses out on the parade ground & we were soon riding through Heliopolis & out on to the
Suez Road; I have had a touch of a sore throat this afternoon
