May. 15 Sat.
Am living very comfortably for active service at present:- share a very comfortable room with Sgt. Clerk; nice bed with mosquito nets, sheets, etc. & hot baths, up to date lavatories; occasional plum puddings purloined from doubtful sources; puddings, tea, cocoa etc. from the Arab waiters.
Lady Maxwell (wife of General Officer Commanding the Forces in Egypt) paid a visit during the afternoon. The patients gave her a great welcome & we finished up with a big group photo. in front of Mena House.
Later in the afternoon received orders to proceed to Gezireh on the morrow.
