Indian Press Deputation at Port Said.

The following appears in the “Englishman”: The veil has been raised for a brief space upon the members of the Indian Press Deputation to the Western Fronts and it has revealed them – not tin-hatted and gartered, not amazed at the sights and sounds of war, not careering in motor-cars over the war areas, not plodding hot foot on the road to Berlin, but “resting” at Port Said, that most salubrious of all salubrious ports: and — sea bathing! Their fame had preceded them no further than Suez. The noise of their coming had died away in the desert, along the shores of the Canal. At Suez the embarkation staff was all knowledge; all readiness to serve; all eagerness to speed them on their way. Here there were in existence special instructions to hasten them onwards and they were so hastened in an early train.
