Orderly dog today. Rode out to the guns this morning and was there most of the morning. Had our usual bathe at midday.

The major got back from Cairo this afternoon and had thoroughly enjoyed it, climbing the pyramids etc.

We had a tremendous blaze this evening. There is a fairly large wooden canteen shed here run by several natives, and apparently they'd been charging exorbitant prices for very moderate stuff. Anyhow, some of the men fired it this evening, and by jove it did burn, stores and all!
