Friday 24 January 1919
Got as far as the Regt. reaching Egypt in my History, but records are poor to work on.
Attended a Lecture on the problems of the East in the Y.M.C.A. but too cold for comfort.
Here at Rafa is a large ammunition dump & at different hours loud explosions take place in destroying quantities of Turkish ammunitions. Great numbers of arms of all sorts have been thrown into the Mediteranean. More Australian mail in. Mother & Day December 1st with Diary & cutting, many thanks. Hope Joe has arrived safely long before this.
