Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 44
Sat. 24th. This morning half the lads took the horses out for exercise whilst the remainder cleaned up the lines. I received a pass out from dinner time & went to the Sulphur Spring & had a bath. Stan went also, the water looked a greenish color, & did not smell too sweet, but it was lovely to swim in, so long as we kept our mouths shut; about two oclock the bath was pretty well filled. I then came to the Winter Palace Hotel & had afternoon tea & did a little writing; and put the evening in at a Concert held at the Tewfik Palace Hotel, the concert was the best I have ever heard. Woods made a "hit" singing a duet with an Italian lady.
