Memories

The Battalion sailed to Egypt on the Empire Fowey but we were unable to get Minnie a passage on this ship so we fixed for her to follow on HMT Devonshire out of Southampton in early May. I travelled up from Fayid to meet Fusilier Dwyer and Minnie at Port Said when the Devonshire docked on 12 May 50 . Unfortunately the ship had a very rough passage and poor old Minnie had been seasick, never have I seen a more miserable pony she looked as though she was going to die any moment. We got her off quite safely and loaded her into a horse box for the run to the Quarantine Depot in Moascar. When I left her she looked as though she was cheering up a little as she was in a stable with fifty mules that had just arrived from Cyprus.
