Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 336
Nov. 18 Thu.
Another big batch of 93 reinforcements arrived from N.S.W. & Queensland for us last night. Goodness only knows what we are going to do with them all, there being fully 150 occupying their time with drill & marching only. There is nothing doing on the Peninsula & A.M.C. work in Egypt is pretty slack.
Our staff at Gezira to-day is :-
Officers - 34
Men - 385
Nurses - 75
Natives - 75 = 569
There are only 400 patients in Hospital.
