‘The whole division minus the 3rd Brigade was drawn up in formation on the desert at 9.30am while General Sir Ian Hamilton inspected us, we then marched past a saluting base back to camp. The late Pte. Pickles kit was sold by auction today, 1510 pistres was received, which will be forwarded to his people at home.’
