5 July 1917

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

The usual sort of day, in which Goldsmith, Clarke & I selected our lectures & attended whichever we fancied. There was a total eclipse of the full moon last night, but I went to bed before it was complete. Today a lot of rafts, about twelve, drifted in. They are believed to belong to the Caledonian, MM, which was torpedoed recently. As they were empty, we presume the survivors were taken off previously, which does not exonerate the damned German. Abraham & I went to El Arish officers’ rest camp for lunch.
