24 July 1917

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

Parades yesterday morning. There was a lot of shelling of somebody’s bivouacs about a mile ahead of ours. It looked rather bad, & men were running about a lot. I don’t know what the casualties were, but probably not as bad as appearances suggested. Our position seems a very dangerous one if we were spotted. In the evening, a few more shells dropped in the same place, & I saw two wretched horses left struggling on the ground. We had company night operations, which were not a creditable show!
