April, 1915
Thursday 1
Went via Cairo route March to Barrage on Nile & bivouac for the night, wrote Laura & Mrs Ferrar this morning – The Gardens here are the prettiest I have seen since leaving Australia. There is also a Museum, showing plans of all the Dams, Locks & Weirs.
At night there is a continual roar of Rushing water & the mosquitoes were very bad – The men camped among the trees, quite a treat after the Desert.
Every tree is covered with Bougainvillia or Roses, a most artistic spot.
We swam all the horses across the Nile on an endless rope, it took about 20 minutes for Squadron 164
