Returned from Alex:-
It is full of French soldiers Blue shirts Red Pants & like a Circus all colored horses. The streets were crowded with Lorrys made out of London Buses! to carry 30 & every hotel full of officers – The bay full of ships & every wharf crowded with Bully Beef & Biscuits
320 casualties out of 1st L.H.B. to date. I expect letters today & will then post.
