Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 17
Wed. 31st. We had a very easy day of it. Nelson, Stan & I, rode out onto the desert a couple of miles & were signalling back to camp with the Heliograph at 11.30 we returned to Camp, & had a sprint to test Stan's mount on the way home, but Idleboy finished up in the lead; had nothing to do after dinner; Stan went into Heliopolis to receive a lesson in French with some lads of the 14th Btn. I stayed in writing; Pitt & Cameron came home "blithered" & caused a good deal of amusement, for half an hour or so.
