Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 14
Sun. 28th. Very windy & dusty this morning. Church parade as usual, but the Y.M.C.A. was cloudy with dust & we had only a short service. A lance Corporal from A Squadron died yesterday at the Heliopolis hospital from pneumonia & was buried this afternoon. Received a pass out from dinner-time, but did not go to Cairo until after tea. Cork, Francis & I went to York House, for a sing-song, & returned to Heliopolis early to find there was a letter from Billy Simon & one from Edie Tomlins.
