Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 172
June 3 Thu.
A native killed another with an iron bar this morning just outside Hospital gates. Very interesting to watch the weeping & wailing of the 30 or 40 womenfolk who collected near the body – (cameras got busy.)
In afternoon went from Bab-el-Louk Station, Cairo to Helouan, 15 miles south on edge of desert. Very interesting journey with Mokattam Hills on left & Nile on right. Helouan a pretty little place & great health resort – dry healthy air, hot sulphur springs etc. – Went over Al Hayat Convalescent Military home containing about 700. Saw a Bedouin Marriage Ceremony which was very interesting.
Saw in an Australian Casualty List that Capt. G.L.B. Concanon had been killed at Dardanelles.
