24 March 1916

Posted by Dick on March 24, 1916
A lovely sunrise this morning and it began to get hot very early. General Murray, G.O.C. of the Med. Expeditionary Force, and the Prince of Wales, inspected the division this morning, with the Mysore Lancers as escort. It was pretty hot work for us. This afternoon they came and inspected the various camps of the division. They came round ours at about two thirty, and seemed very satisfied with everything, and thought the horses were looking fit. A light breeze sprang up in the evening.

The Prince of Wales was aide-de-camp to the General. The Prince rode a dark brown mare, and wore the insignia of the Grenadier Guards in his helmet.
