In the possession of Aref Bey. The original diaries were given to a typist by Aref Bey who then produced the TS version we have in this collection. In the correspondence with the donor it is noted that Aref Bey was satisfied that the section covering service in Amman 1926-1928 was in order and that all the typing errors had been checked, but that he had not checked the Gaza diary.
