Rest for Some Not For Others

Saturday 29th June 1918

Yesterday 1st/5th Battalion spent a quiet, restful day in Egypt before they begin training in earnest for the forthcoming offensive. Half the officers, for example, have been granted leave in Port Said or Ismailia. By contrast 2nd Battalion is gearing up for a "show" tomorrow.
