Dec. 6 Mon.
3 of us left the Depot about 2 p.m. & went for a walk along the peninsula to the lighthouse past the Sultan's Palace, No. 21 Gen. Hospital, German & Austrian prisoners' camp, motor ambulance depot & Ras-el-Tin Military Hospital. Lighthouse 200 ft. high & a magnificent view from the top – Eastern & western harbours, lake Mariut, the City & right out to sea. Walked back to the Depot for afternoon tea & then drove into Alex. round the sea front – very pretty. Then went out to Camp de Ceasar to attend Scout meeting & spent a pleasant evening with 1st Alexandria Boys, - also visited one of the Scout's people.
