On the gravel plain between Cairo and Baharya. Craig taking a photo, Giblin seated in the touring car.

"Our transport was to consist of two 30-cwt. (Ford) lorries, of which I would buy one, and Prendergast and Craig the other, and a New Ford (Model A) touring car which Giblin owned and would bring with him. ... The lorry chassis was bought at Rawalpindi that summer, and a light wood body built to my design with plenty of lockers and handy places in it to stow away odds and ends. ... Prendergast's lorry was ready, with an efficient box-body thoroughly equipped with tools, spare parts, picks and shovels."
