June 22 Tue.
Up at 5.30 a.m. – shower & 3½ mile walk round the Island before breakfast. Best time of the day as it gets so hot later– the Nile is very pretty – Yeomanry look well exercising their horses.
My correspondence has become somewhat extensive lately & as I acknowledge all letters received, have been rather busy getting off replies. We can now send letters & parcels to Australia free provided they are initialled by a responsible Officer. This will save me quite a small fortune – I guess.
