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 reinforcements had a medical inspection. I visited the Sphinx and different tombs around the pyramids, also the valley temple of Khefren. This temple is very much damaged but not to the extent that some others are. The pillars of granite are about 14 ft. by 3 by 3 and are in a fair state of preservation. The price of admission is one piastre.'

Herbert sent many letters and post cards home describing the sights he had seen.  War provided an opportunity for young men to see and experience things that would have been unimaginable in their everyday lives.
