Sunday 5 January 1919
Raining today. Most of the Padres have gone home, so Y.M.C.A. carries on the work, they provided the Prize money for yesterday's sports, about 200/-/-. We have started Polo Club but I feel too old to enter much. Never again will we be young men. Will women make allowances for what has happened to us. I feel so old with Dolly sometimes who is a kiddy in her ways & thoughts. A big Handley Page aeroplane flew over our Camp on its way to India. I took photos in Cairo of one of these machines.
