Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 280
Sep. 23 Thu.
Had my last swim at Montazah during the morning.
After dinner heard that a body of a man in military uniform round which was a lifebelt had been washed ashore on the beach. Went along with one of the Scouts to have a look at him but it was too far away – Walked back through the fruit laden date palms.
Left Montaza at 3.30 pm by Motor Amb. & caught 4.10 train from Sidi Gaba arriving at Cairo at 7.30 p.m. Had dinner in town - & then back to Gezira once more having spent the best 8 days since I arrived in Egypt.
