General Godley inspected us while we were out; we arrived back in camp shortly after 3 oclock this afternoon & did not feel inclined to go anywhere after & turned into bed early

Wed 10th
The bugle had us up at 5.15 this morning & had to bustle about & feed our horses & ourselves & get out on parade at 7 o'clock; We were then marched into Cairo & formed up with the infantry, a whole division (17,000) taking part in the parade; we did not have a very hard day & returned to camp about dark, a big mail is to be issued tonight
