Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 365
Dec. 17 Fri.
In the afternoon for exercise walked into town through Kasr-el-Nil & past Abdin [Abdeen] Palace – bought to-days "Bourse" (French Daily) & had afternoon tea at Groppis – then walked back again. A lot of English people must be coming to Cairo now - I passed quite a number in the streets.
After tea went round to 1st Cairo Scouts' clubroom where there was a flag dedication ceremony.
