31 May 1917

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

Bayonet fighting in the morning, & very little to do. We had a real good night & did not get up till 5 AM, which is unwanted, luxury for us. Except for a little bit of kit inspection etc in the morning we had a complete off-day, which was very welcome, & we spent it sleeping & reading on the hard floor of our dug-outs. There were a few Turkish shells about in the evening, but not over us. They seemed to be aimed at the next people on our left. All much cheered by Lloyd George’s hints that we are getting on better against German submarines.
