March 9, 1916 Thursday

Hopped out at 5.30

Scrubbed my horse this morning & was Orderly Corporal so had to look after the defaulters.

The last aeroplane left us this morning & are now established at Assuit.

Weather is getting frightfully warm & no money to ease our thirst although Burns has gone for the Head Qrs.

Went down the town after tea with Perce Bates had a feed then came home at ten & turned in.

March 10, 1916 Friday

Revielle at 5.30

Started to break camp at 9 all the last of the aerodrome stuff was taken down to the station, ours was taken during the afternoon & evening & as we had been paid early in the day the drivers had no difficulty in getting drunk in fact nearly all the troop were sprokked.

I was baggage guard & had to put the night in on the station where what with mosquitos & lice I had quite a lively time.

Went up the town before turning in for supper & had a splendid time & feed. Said goodbye to Kamel who is thinking of coming down to Assuit with us.

Bed at 9.30.
