Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 27
Thurs. 8th. This morning we were signalling with Head Quarters & got into communication with some signallers on the hill behind the Citadel. The Squadron was mounted, but there was no parade this afternoon, but we were paid instead, a party from here went to Luxor last Tuesday, & arrived back this morning, they say they had a good trip, shortage of funds stopped me from going. A "two-up" school is going strong here in the mess room tonight, trying to get rid of their pay; had to fall in at 8 oclock as on line picquet till 10 o'clock.
