20 July 1917

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

Examinations were on, so Goldsmith & I had nothing to do. I had a bathe in the morning. My only objection to the bathing is the chance of swimming into some ghastly relic of a torpedoed ship. I hear one fellow found a human scalp at our bathing-place yesterday! There was a final orgy in the evening when we asked the officers of the school staff to dine, & got in a small quantity of “fizz”. Christie dined with me. Several of us had to make speeches, & many were rather light.
