Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 272
Sep. 15 Wed.
Left Gezira 11.30 am – Cairo 12 noon arrived Sidi Gaba 3.10 (just outside Alex). Changed there for Montazeh where arrived at 4 p.m. Journey from Cairo to Sidi Gaba uneventful – line passing between well irrigated fields of waving corn , & cotton bushes. Between Sidi Gaba & Montazeh passed numerous fruit laden date palms & fig trees, Australian camp with horse lines, & a camp of French Troops. I hope to have a good time at the Conval. Depot. It is a big building right on the ocean, on the coast west of Alexandria.
