Item 02: Fred Harold Tomlins war diary, 21 March-3 September 1915 - Page 46
Mon. 26th. This morning half of us led the horses out for exercise, while the others cleaned up the lines. No parade after dinner & we had time enough to slip down & have our farewell bath in Helouan. Stables at 3.30, then tea, & had to be ready to leave Helouan at 6 oclock. It was just dark when we marched by the Tewfik Palace Hotel, & were soon on the road to Maadi. The night was cool & the moon came out shortly after we started, but I was too sleepy to enjoy the ride, & was glad when we arrived at Maadi at midnight & were asleep within half an hour, & rather hungry to be comfortable.
