5 April 1916

Posted by Dick on April 5, 1916
We bathed before breakfast this morning. Kit inspections etc. took up the morning, we also had an officers' "pow wow" with the colonel about various things. A flock of about thirty pelicans flew over camp this morning, but quite high up.

We had to ride over to another general "pow wow" this afternoon by the G.O.C. divisional artillery. The authorities are very annoyed at the gutting of that canteen the other night and as a result the three artillery brigades this side of the canal (ourselves, the 1/3rd and 1/4th) have got CB until further notice, so not much chance of leave until they find out the culprits.

There was a clothing inspection at 8.30 a.m. to clear the Battery (and Brigade) of any suspicion of having participated in the theft of £150 in cash and certain goods from the Egyptian canteen, prior to its destruction.
