26 June 1917

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

Tried a pay-day with practically no change, so all the company is in debt amongst itself, as all had to lend one another odd piastres. Nothing else doing except the usual uneventful watch in O.P. I heard from mrs Brooks, to whom I reported on Tom & Noel. In the evening we started a new system of occupying the trenches, having two companies of our battalion & two of the Denbighs always in. I won the toss, so No 3 & 4 came out, i.e. Sam & myself, & Charles and Roger Kynaston over to Charles & only got in by 8 PM.
