Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 309
Oct. 22 Fri.
At 3 p.m. Went off for a tour of inspection of the Tombs of the Khalifs & Mamelukes near the Mokattam Hills & then walked through the Dead City.
After tea 4 of us went out to Mena – secured donkeys – and went for a ride on the desert behind the Sphinx & Pyramids. It was great! Everything flooded in moonlight. The Nile looks jolly good with the moonlight shining on it. The Pyramids reflected in the water on the flats.
