Saturday 3 March 1917
I am writing this at Shepherds Hotel where I met my wife nearly 2 years ago now. Did an examination this morning & a Staff Ride. In addition to a Cavalry School, other ranks all at different courses.
One of our boys was being cursed for not saluting & the Instructor said "You are more Trouble than any other Unit operating in Egypt". Reply was "That is what the Turkssay".
TOM Austin is here one of Bertie's sons I think he is, he got wounded at MAGDAHASA, but is alright now.
