Rupert Gunnis, Director of Antiquities and ADC to Sir Ronald Storrs, recounted the day’s activities, combining official duties with work at the museum:

HE, Lady S and I to moat where HE presented the King’s Birthday honour of the British Empire to the recipients. A very good parade and very well done indeed, one of the best things the Police have done yet. He could not take Lago as they would have a demonstration against him, so he went to Athalassa. After lunch all of them went to the tekke at Larnaca. I stayed behind and did some work and also visited the museum, we have just got a very fine new marble torso, found in the churchyard, archaic, 5th century. Billiards after dinner.
