Diary of an ANZAC
Please note: Care has been taken to transcribe these entries without alteration to preserve the original language of Herbert Vincent Reynolds.
‘The dust has been blowing again and in fact was even worse than last Monday. Granted leave but did not go out of camp till after dinner when I took a run into Gizeh and visited the Zoological gardens. The place though not large is very beautiful and the collection of animals is not very large though what they have are really fine specimens. All the pathways are laid out in beautiful designs of coloured pebbles bedded in concrete. Two bridging pontoons captured from the Turks in their effort to cross the canal recently are on exhibition in the gardens and they show signs of having been in a pretty rough corner.’
