Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 155
May. 17 Mon.
Not much work to do – the new place appears to be run much more on system than Mena. Spent some time in straightening up the office which is pretty untidy.
1st Cairo B-P Scouts meet every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at their headquarters – attended their meeting to-night & spent a very decent time there with "Snow" Freeman (Private, No. 2 G.H.). One of the Asst. S.Ms. shewed us the Troop printing outfit & Carpenter's Bench and room they are fitting up as gymnasium.
The food we get at Gezira could not be better & we have a native to wait on us for 6 piastres a head per month.
Am sleeping upon the 1st floor in an empty room on a wicker bedstead with mattress & pillow (the latter a Kyarra souvenir) – Very Kumfee!
