7 July 1917

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

A woman’s body was washed up last night, probably from the Caledonian. It makes one hope that there will be no peace yet awhile, until fuller vengeance has been achieved. A half-holiday today. I had intended to go into El Arish with Goldsmith but I went to sleep & failed to wake up till too late. In the evening we played Bridge, the first time for months. Another body or two came in in the evening, making a total of 4 woman, or more accurately three and a half! No wonder sharks have increased.
