September, 1915
Sunday 12
At my request I am shifting to "El Hoyat" Convalescent Hospital Helonan – This is another immense Hotel built for Tourists, you may remember we trekked here & bivouacked for 4 days last March.
There are about 30 officers here & the main trouble seems to be the dirty Nile water which being in flood is like the Yarra -
Heliopolis water is from an Artesian Bore – Travelling shook me up a lot & I'll sleep well – Got a bit of Rheumatism want of exercise I expect.
