January 1st (Sat)
With No. 2 General Hospital, Aust. Army Medical Corps stationed at Gezira, Cairo.
Have been away from Sydney over 13 months
Jan 4th (Tues)
Real Egyptian winter weather now. Bright, sunny days & cold nights. Last night it rain came down fairly heavily – this is the fourth time it is rained since I have been in Cairo, nearly 12 months.
It is very hard to know how to put in one's spare time. I don't particularly care for knocking round Cairo's streets & walks round Gezira become monotonous. A chap does miss having no real friends & I do envy those lucky chaps who have been able to chum up with people of some nationality or other.
