Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 379
Dec. 31 Fri.
New Year's Eve.
Cairo very quiet although precautions had been taken in event of any disturbance, by bringing in large numbers of Mil. Police – the Town Picquets, both mounted & foot, being considerably strengthened.
Art. Felton came over to see me this afternoon from Overseas Base, Giza. He was invalided from the Peninsula about 2 months ago.
Mail arrived from Australia Hooray! (13 months since we left Sydney – The "Hooray" has nothing to do with the 13 months etc).
