Extract from the diary of Maj P K Glazebrook, Cheshire Yeomanry, Egypt Expeditionary Force
We had a long battalion attack, which was tedious and gritty. All the experts were duly gathered together, like vultures round the carrion, so criticism was continuous and mutually destructive. The men really did it rather well, but must have been considerably fed up. The usual game in the afternoon, platoon leaders trying to avoid boring their men. I dined in Cairo with Tom.
