May. 21 Fri.
Busy all the morning getting out Returns etc. Lance Cpl. Hill came out of Hospital (influenza) to-day so that now there are two of us in the Admin. Office.
Went into Town (Cairo) in the afternoon & was measured for an issue of khaki drill coat & long trousers.
During the summer which has now commenced, the shops are closed from noon to 3 p.m. – the hottest part of the day.
Saw a very pretty grotto in the Esbekieh Gardens to-day. We also have a very interesting grotto in the grounds of Gezira Palace.
