Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 236
Aug. 8 Sun.
Visited the Armenian Boy Scouts at their Headquarters in the Armenian School (Kasr-el-Nil) at 2.30 p.m. About 70 boys in 2 Troops (A & B) & very smart. All orders given in English which is spoken well by the S.M. & his Assistant (the latter speaks 6 languages fluently). These Scouts are distinguishable by violet neckerchiefs & are the best I have yet seen in Cairo. They wear English equipment & work on B.S.A. lines.
Attended Evening Service at All Saints' at which I struck Willie Vane.
