8 May 1917

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

Had a bad night, & saw the doctor in the morning, with the result that I am lying under a blanket shelter in a maddening swarm of flies, while Eason takes the company, in an inspection by our new brigadier, Col Bowker, of the Essex. I seem to have a mild form of dysentery, which is rather a nuisance, but nothing more. I was not allowed to eat anything, & drank a little tinned milk and water. Rather a dull & miserable sort of day on the whole.
