4 April, 1916
It was an awful messed up morning, We had got our kit bags and Tents packed up yesterday & everything should have gone like clockwork but they fooled us about that way that in stead of moving off at 12.0 it was after 12.30 when we got away. I was glad to see the last of Serapeum it was a dismal hole, the N.Z. band played us out of camp. I noticed that a lot of artillery had just arrived there, it seems funny that one lot should move out & another move in. We rattled along in great style & nearing Ismalia the way was very pretty; through cultivation & trees. out side Ismalia there were hundreds of NZ troops in the water bathing, They looked fine. We got fixed up for the night about dark - Then Joe Woods Harold & I went to the pictures. It seemed quite a night out
