7 February 1917

Extract from the diary of Maj P K Glazebrook, Cheshire Yeomanry, Egypt Expeditionary Force

A small convoy came in in the morning, as it is intended to send them every third day instead of every fifth in future. We had some work after the convoy had been disposed of, getting a semaphore class, medical lecture & NCO’s class in. The afternoon as usual was a half-holiday, and was spent mostly in sleep. Part of an English mail arrived, after an interval of about a fortnight. Even then it consisted of things which were about ten days overdue. America looks like being dragged into the war, much against it’s will, & has already severed diplomatic relations with Germany and Austria
