Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 217
July 18 Sun.
Went into Cairo in the afternoon after a couple of parcels from Sydney but the Parcels Office had closed at noon. The day was not extra warm but a thermometer in a shop registered exactly 100° (about 3 p.m.).
Very thirsty weather – to-day got through 2 Lime drinks, 2 Ice creams & a lemonade.
